A Creative Partnerships Consultation Project involving a residency with a team of artists: Curious Cargo's Tess Hills as visual artist, working in collaboration with dancer & project manager Peppy Hills & writer Peter Cann. The team of artists were commissioned to consult with all users of the centre (children, parents, staff, board of governors etc) to gather people's thoughts/feelings regarding the rapid rate of growth that the centre had undergone in the last 5 years, and what people's hopes and dreams were for the centre's future. The creative team used a range of visual & performance art techniques to engage with the client group. Findings where fed-back to the centre through an 'experiential' day where actors where employed to present monologues in various settings throughout the centre, (the client group would 'just' happen upon them), visual art installations, projections, soundscapes, environment changes etc.
Project managers at Craft Space
Touring, Birmingham, brought in Curious Cargo to conduct a one-day consultation
process using a variety of creative interventions to gather thoughts &
feedback. The QE Hospital was planning a major over-haul of the relaxation
& recreation spaces within the Young People's Cancer Ward and wanted
a full & frank consultation with the young people who were on the
Ordsall (in Salford) underwent
a extensive urban regeneration making significant environmental &
infrastructure changes to the local area. Local organisation 'Ordsall
Community Arts' teamed up with property developer LCP Living to canvas
opinion & feedback from local people. The vehicle for this, (quite
literally a trolley made by Pif Paf Arts!), was a creative consultation
project which went out & about on the streets of Ordsall. Curious
Cargo was commissioned to make the 3D interactive consulation tool as
shown in the images.
Two performers, both in character: one dressed as a tree (Ric Taylor) the other a gardener (Tess Hills), asked people to fill up the Feedback Tree because it had no leaves or fruit. The question asked was dependent on the fate of the apples being juggled - whichever fruit/question that was chosen/caught by the particpant, was the one to be answered. The brief for this commission was the need to focus on people's personal feelings about the day's content, and the way forward - an overall 'temperature gauge' of the conference.
