The Clay Cross public art project is a really fantastic example of how public art, community arts and consultation can work hand in hand. I was commissioned by Junction Arts to deliver a virtual project with three groups of people from the area. I worked online with children from Sharley Park School, residents from the Old Vicarage Care Home and young adults from Chesterfield College. I delivered a total of 19 virtual workshops in a wide range of mediums including, charcoal, expressive painting to music, chalk, creative feedback tags, birds and flower templates. The art work created from the workshops was sent to Digital Artist Will Lindley from Different Light Collective, who used it to inspire a digital projection for the town. Different Light are working to perform the digital projection in September 2021 (restrictions permitting). Watch this space for more news on the event and workshops, exhibition leading up to it!
“Working with Lucie was a pleasure and a real stroke of luck. She’s a consummate professional, creative, hardworking, organised and always ready to go the extra mile to achieve a successful outcome.” Jane Wells, Junction Arts
