Contemporary Art Society Consultancy worked with InSite Arts to produce the public art strategy for Cambridge University’s North West Cambridge development. The strategy prefaces integrated approaches to working with artists and a sustainable programme of commissioning, both permanent and temporary, through a 15 year-long development programme.
An internationally networked Artist Residency Programme is the heart of the strategy, ensuring that a unique understanding of place is central to the programme. A series of permanent and temporary commissions are taking place throughout the development which continues to be strengthened and supported by the residency scheme.
The University worked with Consultancy to appoint a high-profile advisory panel of arts, culture and academic professionals to guide the artistic programme.
In November 2014, Head of Consultancy Fabienne Nicholas and Sam Wilkinson, Contemporary Art Society Consultancy Associate – North West Cambridge Development, took part in a debate on the future of public art in Cambridge. You can watch the video here.
