TV company invites ideas for a Hollingbourne public art project.

A television company has approached Hollingbourne Parish Council to see if Hollingbourne would like to participate in a public art project. Please Read More for the message from Team Big Things.

Hi there,

I am developing an exciting, new programme for a major UK Broadcaster and we need the help of parish councils to get the word out to the residents of small villages and communities around the UK

The idea behind the show is that we will be funding numerous public art projects around the country and we want the public to nominate their own village to win the chance of creating a new landmark for their community

The unique process will see established artists working with the local people to create large pieces of public art that have specific meaning to their community. We want them to use public art as a way of creating a discussion about their own shared collective identity

We would like residents of small towns and villages to get in touch and tell us what makes their hometown so special. Does it have a rich history? Is something or someone famous associated with it? Do they have interesting traditions? Has the community fallen on hard times and is in need of reminding people about how special it really is? What is their unique story?

The most important thing is that the town has a strong sense of community and a commitment to the project, as this is a journey they will all go on together with the goal to create a legacy piece of public art that generations will be proud of

We’re hoping that parish councils will be able to spread the word to their local residents by forwarding the email on to the right people and displaying the flyer (attached to this email) where it can be easily seen.

A member of our team will be in touch to any applicants we wish to progress further.

Thank you in advance
