This particular project involved working with Public Art Leicester and Leicester Housing Association on a large scale ‘Cultural Mapping’, ACE Lottery/SRB5 funded commission involving integrated artworks and the complete design of soft and hard landscaping of an exterior seating area, children’s play area, and basket ball court.
During this £120,000 project, Pearman was involved in a series of community workshops to gather opinions and ideas for the scheme. These workshops involved working with youth schemes, people with learning difficulties, elderly people and primary school children. By combining this engagement aspect with a close involvement with the architect and project manager, Pearman has successfully transformed a redundant exterior space into a durable and exciting area for the local community.
The artworks for the scheme include vitreous enamel panels, relief concrete slabs, furniture and a mosaic tiled area.
