Joint Initiatives Fund Public Art Group — Hampshire
Consultancy by Artefact Projects
Brigid Howarth and I were appointed as consultants to the Joint Initiatives Fund Public Art Group, which was a consortium of Councils including Eastleigh District Council, Havant District Council, Test Valley District Council, Portsmouth City Council, Isle of Wight Council, Hampshire County Council, Gosport District Council and Basingstoke District Council. The aim of the consultancy was to facilitate projects that each of the councils wanted to undertake. We produced an advocacy PowerPoint that could be used by the arts officers or presented by us to make the case for public art. The PowerPoint made the point that councils have to compete for funding, for developers, for people and businesses and a very cost effective and visible way of doing that is through a public art programme.
