'Our Space’ aims to build a complete picture of the school community: from past pupils, to delivery drivers, from governors to belly dancers! Images and measurements will be collected using a specially constructed photo booth, the ‘Our Space’ card or this website.
Sculptor Will Nash and photographer Anthony Carr, will then turn this information into new artworks, one of which will be installed in the school grounds in March.
“The idea behind the ‘Our Space’ project is of community. What do we mean when we talk about our community? Geography, people, place and common interests, but also more importantly, it refers to a common ‘all’ made up of individuals. ‘Our Space’ aims to involve ‘all’ of the school community in its process and to represent this community in the resulting artworks” Will Nash, sculptor
“We are delighted to see the Our Space project progressing to the next phase, following the excellent work they did with the Art Plus Development Award in 2006. Increasing opportunities for everyone to take part in the arts lies at the core of what we do, that's why we're so excited to see the whole school as well as the local community engaging with the project.” Stephanie Fuller, Public Art and Architecture Officer, at Arts Council England, South East
