Articulture, in collaboration with a range of leading Wales based arts organisations (venues and festivals) who are interested in encouraging and supporting new Wales based outdoor art work, formed a commissioning consortium in late 2014.
The model of the consortium took its inspiration from the successful Without Walls consortium in England.
Since the successful pilot in 2015, Articulture has again been funded by ACW to take forward the Wales consortium and to continue its work in 2018.
Articulture manages and facilitiates the work of the consortium, and with the support of ACW is also a partner.
- Present & develop work from a new & emerging generation of Wales based outdoor artists.
- Support & encourage Wales based artists who may not have had previous experience of outdoor arts, but would like to.
- Work with established Wales based companies & artists who are keen to experiment & develop new approaches to their work.
- Help stimulate new, surprising & engaging outdoor arts collaborations between Wales based artists from different disciplines.
- Support the development & presentation of work with culturally diverse and deaf and disabled Wales based artists.
- Work as a collective with Wales based artists in a positive, open and collaborative way, allowing space for active sharing and learning throughout the process of developing and touring work through regular communication and ongoing evaluation.
