Art by Preston people, for Preston people! This project aims to show the brilliant, diverse talent of the people of Preston. At a time when there are no accessible exhibitions - which can be viewed at any time of the day - on display in Preston, this project aims to bring art and culture to the people of Preston. Money raised will be spent on printing of the artworks (standard size A0) and for their installation. A producer will be paid to co-ordinate the project, find suitable spaces to hang the artworks, administer printing process and manage the call-out for artists who apply to have their work put on display.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Showcase the work of Preston artists. Encourage art, creativity and boost confidence of local creatives. Give people visiting the city of Preston some art to look at. Increase pride in the city through art. Outdoor location guarantees that people who do not usually see art get the chance to experience it.
Steps to get it done:
This proposal has been put together by Garry Cook (@gazcook) Cook and Enjoy the Show UK (@EnjoyTheShowUK) have brought over 150 arts and culture events to Preston, including exhibitions, theatre and performance shows, plus Lancashire Fringe Festival and Lancashire Photography Festival.
