Having sourced over a 100 mannequins and endless amounts of recycled material we have made inventive creations and sculptures that I, on behalf of our community groups would like to display publicly. Having graduated with a BA in Fine Art from The University of Northampton and gaining experience working in the public realm I have the confidence and determination to showcase our works across Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Herefordshire where I have strong art contacts that have expressed interest in becoming involved in such an event. We have a wide range of mannequin sculptures ranging from steam punk to floral beauty that would suit many locations. I run community library groups across Northamptonshire that will all display works and help us to generate a wider audience for us and potential to broaden our groups to greater means. We would like to set up outdoor working areas as workshops so that the public can become directly involved in the projects.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Because so many people do not realise they have the opportunity to become involved in open art projects in their local areas. We promote freedom expression and encourage anyone, of any age, from any background to become involved with our work. We do not just use mannequins we use many found objects ranging from rocking horses and dolls houses to chairs and cushions with all sorts of ideas flowing to get people motivated and creative.
