how we work
We commission artists who have a track record of delivering collaborative, adventurous and engaging art, and whose ideas align
with our artistic policy.
Each season we deliver public events and activities as opportunities to get involved with the work of these specialist, experienced artists.
In addition to the advertised events programme, we invite many local community and charity groups to take part in bespoke workshops with our commissioned artist. We also create opportunities for the artist to work with the people who come to our regular sessions.
Participants from both ‘open’ and ‘closed’ sessions are then able to come together to become active collaborators in the artist’s practice, during a sustained period of creative exchange and art production.
Together we make adventurous and exciting art, which we share with a wider audience both in Bedford and beyond through public presentations, exhibitions and performances.
