Our Programmes / Public Art
The Making operates as an agency facilitating the commission of new artworks for the public realm.
We work closely with partners including architects and involve artists at the earliest possible stage to ensure public consultation and involvement is embedded in the process. For more information please contact .

Everest Community College

This project was set within the wider context of the new school build and the regeneration of Popley, Basingstoke. The Making together with the school, Hampshire County Council Architects and the Hampshire Sculpture Trust, successfully secured funding for public art commissions for the new building, main square and four ‘curriculum gardens’ through Arts Council England's Grants for the Arts.

The Making managed both the commissions and the education and community consultation element of the programme, featuring artists’ residencies, workshops and events. The project was successfully completed in 2008.

See images below of artworks installed for the Curriculum Gardens: Maths and ICT, Science and Technology, Humanities, Communications, the Campus Forum and the Main Square at the entrance to the school.
