During Flyover Takeover 2016, 4 artists – a sculptor, a duo of photographers, a theatre practitioner and an installation artist worked with communities in local neighbourhoods. Between them, they have begun shaping content for events and installations for next year’s programme.
We want local residents to develop their sense of ‘ownership’ of this space, by playing an active role in our ongoing artistic programme, as we embed cultural activity and installations in the long-term planning for The Flyover and its role as a car free space on Sundays.
Our task now is to raise the funding to create these projects within our forthcoming cultural programme
