Do you have a strong connection with your local environment? Enjoy seeing your neighbourhood come alive during community festivals? Want to bring your neighbours together to celebrate in community space?
We are the Sustainable Thinking and Expression on Public Space (STEPS) Initiative, a group of artists, activists, architects, and academics, collectively promoting the use of art to connect people with places (especially public spaces). We are committed to enabling the use of art to challenge and change: the ways in which public spaces are currently being used; how citizens communicate on environmental issues; and the role of the artist in community development.
Have you been involved in the production of a community mosaic, labyrinth or street theatre performance? Do you know of projects that use art to transform public space? Know of related upcoming events or resources? Send us a message.
