Grange Park & Mereside Commissioning Groups

As part of our projects on Grange Park and Mereside we?re creating a group for each area who will be involved in decision making about which artists and projects come and work in their area. The groups get together once a month to talk about upcoming projects and opportunities ? plus it?s a great chance to meet some of the LeftCoast team.

Not only that but the two groups will get the opportunity to ?go see? different kinds of creative projects and shows around the country, receive training on how to commission artists and find out how to use arts activity as a way to shape the places in which they live.

Following last summer?s activities on Grange Park with ?Squash Nutrition? the focus for the commissioning group in this area is food, planting and growing in creative ways. The Mereside commissioning group are set to explore the green spaces on the estate following the Crocus Field project last year to see how creative commissions and work with artists can enhance them.

Both the groups are open to anyone living or working in the area so this is a perfect chance for you to get involved in shaping your area. For more information or to join either group contact Kerenza McClarnan on 01253 477973 or email?
