Our Current Project: Newtown Brick Project has been funded by Arts Council England, click here for live painting dates in August and September 2023 in Newtown, Bristol.
Welcome to the Brick Project CIC Homepage. For information on Newtown Brick Project, funded by Arts Council England, please click here! Brick Project creates social painting activities that draw communities together. We invite participants to paint an individual piece of art that forms part of a collective mural: - in a Brick Project (taking place on a public brick wall) - or a Mandala Project (a portable version, where each circle is a piece of a Mandala, an ancient circular mind map). We take commissions and bookings internationally so please contact us here.
Evolving from a project in 2011, we became a UK-based community interest company (CIC) in 2019. Read our history here.
We facilitate the creation of thousands of mini-artworks created by local people. These become a physical and digital archive of the project itself and the community who took part. Please view our digital archive here.
Working at unloved or neglected bricked or tiled public areas, Brick Project's main objectives are: - improving the environment people are living in by developing an event, creating a memory of place for years to come. - facilitating a collaborative activity where people of different backgrounds can work cooperatively on a permanent public art piece. Brick Project is proud to be supporting schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture. The Mandala workshop activities we offer greatly contribute to education settings working towards or developing an Artsmark Award.
