Art and Living an A to Z for Trumpington
Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination with Trumpington residents, commissioned by Futurecity and Countryside Properties

For this project I was one of three artists (alongside Idit Nathan and Karl Foster) who ran this community consultation project for a new housing development to be build, now known as Great Kneighton in Trumpington, Cambridge. Through a range of creative activities, CCI enabled local residents to describe what the area was like, the aspirations they had for it, and offer their thoughts on what art could contribute in the future. These elements came together in the book 'Art and Living an A to Z for Trumpington' to inspire everyone involved in creating the new developments. In particular it was given to all artists who came to work on public art projects during the development's construction.
