Shaping art in Exeter
Published: 23 February 2022
People can help shape public art in Exeter by taking part in a short online survey.
The survey will help in the development of an ambitious strategy for public art in the city.
Art Work Exeter (AWE) has recently been appointed by the City Council, in partnership with Exeter Culture and Liveable Exeter, and funded by the University of Exeter, to progress the initiative.
The strategy will seek to ensure public spaces are designed to engage interest, to be stimulating and unique, and to act as a focal point to encourage pride of place.
It will recognise that public spaces should be distinctive and special and that public art is a powerful tool in regenerating and celebrating those places.
It will also seek the inclusion and involvement of communities at all times, and will be specific and unique to Exeter and the surrounding area.
Cllr Amal Ghusain, Lead Councillor for Communities and Culture, said: “We’re keen to hear from as many people as possible across the city and beyond. Everyone has a view on art and we need to capture a wide range of views, opinions and ideas to be able to shape the strategy.”
AWE will be conducting a number of consultation activities, the main one being an online survey, in which they hope will capture what is important to the people who live and work in the city.
The survey only takes around 20 minutes to complete and will be open until 30 April. For more information and to complete the survey visit the Art Work Exeter website
