COMMUNITY
'Tracey has developed innovative techniques to engage with the community in the most appropriate ways, and has acquired specialist skills in the process'.

 

Community-based Public Art Projects
Tracey employs two wide-ranging methods to engage community groups in the creation of public art projects. They are:

Collaborating with Community Groups to Create Art for Public & Community Spaces

This involves working with community groups to facilitate the creation of artworks that the community 'own'. In this role Tracey provides inspiration, guidance and assistance to support participation throughout the creative process.

Examples of the unique permanent artworks that have resulted from these projects are: School gates for Lowry High School in Salford; 'Roots; Routes' mosaic floorscape, Old Trafford Library & Community Centre; Decorative 30metre Steel Fence, Minera Industrial Estate, Wrexham.

Community Consultation Projects linked to Public Art Commissions

Sometimes artworks are commissioned for a public space unrelated to any one specific group. The community's views and ideas can influence the nature of the commissioned artwork as Tracey employs a range of exciting and creative consultation processes.
