Clay Cross Commission

bird 1-vivid

I worked with a group of artists from Different Light Collective for this commission. My role was engaging with the community and delivering virtual workshops that created content to inspire a digital projection in the town. I developed an overall theme, worked with people of all ages using a wide variety of art forms and delivered over 19 workshops. The aim of the project was to explore community ideas, opinions and stories through sessions and workshops. This was carried out during COVID and all sessions/workshops took place online. This was a challenge for all the artists involved but we rose to it and created a very successful piece of community driven public art.

The commission was used to start discussions around the development and investment in the town and created real buzz around Clay Cross. Not dissimilar to the Animate project, commissioned by the Council using a place based approach.

One resident and participant said, “Clay Cross will bloom and grow, this will inspire change.”

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
