Public Art and Housing Event

  • Maple House 150 Corporation Street, Birmingham B4 6TB (map)

A one day event hosted by ixia on Wednesday 7th May in Birmingham will explore the role of public art within the context of housing policies and developments. 

The government’s support for the provision of private and social housing combined with its inclusion of public art, cultural well-being and good design within national planning policies and guidance is triggering opportunities and funding for artists to work with housing developers, housing associations, local councils, communities, designers and others. This event will explore the role of public art within the context of housing policies and developments.

The moderator will be Sean Griffiths, Principal Architect at Modern Architect and Co-founder of Fashion Architecture Taste (FAT).

Speakers include:

Wayne Hemingway MBE, Co-founder, Hemingway Design;
Andrew Whitaker, Planning Director, Home Builders Federation (HBF);
Mark Davy, Founder, Future City;
Ju Row Farr, Artist, Blast Theory;
Louise Wyman, Midlands Large Sites Lead, Homes and Communities Agency (HCA);
Paul Kelly, Senior Arts Development Manager, Lancashire County Council;
Jeanne van Heeswijk, Artist.

Aimed at anyone with an interest or involvement in public art and housing, the event is free but booking is essential. Tickets can be booked via Eventbrite by clicking here
