civic have developed a portfolio of projects that represent community participation in public arts projects. Andy leads the arts projects and has built on a strong background of collaborative arts practise coupled with his particular skills as an illustrator and visual artist.
Many of our public art projects involve widespread community engagement during the creative brief writing stage and in the detailed delivery of projects. There is a direct hand that the public have in shaping the works and in steering their locations and character. In our latest work for the new health centre in Kilsyth, over 100 panels have been ‘written’ by participants on the installed sculptures: making the work a product of time, place and people.
