Participants will need to be based in or regularly work in Wiltshire. It will include a brief overview of current public art and design thinking, practical advice on responding to commissions, an introduction to public art activity and context in Wiltshire and hands-on participatory sessions.

At the end of the session you should have a better understanding of:

  • how and why public art projects happenhow artists are selected and projects are managed
  • the role and scope of an artist
  • how to approach and respond to a brief
  • better understanding of what constitutes professionalism and why that’s important for artists and those with whom they work

Wiltshire Council will be commissioning artists as it secures contributions for art and design in the public realm.
