Engagements

After a long negotiation process with Castlethorn Developments we have secured our chosen site where the proposed commercial district will be. The significance of this site, to us, as a place of coming together for a community while it is in its interim phase of development, lends itself to many potential interventions and possibilities.

We would really love to hear from any residents or groups who are interested in the project and would like to participate. There is a part for everyone to play in shaping this artwork.

Please contact us ryprojects@hotmail.com if you are interested in the project we would love to hear from you.
