We take bookings for festivals and work in schools and exhibition spaces. We also facilitate residencies in art galleries and development in communities. ​ If you like what we do and want to collaborate with us, we're ready to work with you. Let us know about your idea and we can come up with the right package for you. Our experienced team offers a broad range of services, skills and knowledge in the following areas:

FESTIVALS AND EVENTS​: Brick Project facilitate the direct experience of creative flow through the medium of painting for all ages at festivals. ​ We can curate a creative space that functions as a drop-in activity and can also deliver workshops to larger scheduled groups, working towards the completion of a Mandala made up from hundreds of individually hand painted pieces.

SCHOOLS: Brick Project work with schools in a range of ways. We can create a Brick Project in a specific area for school leavers, which can either be permanent or reworked annually. We can create Mandalas as an indoor activity that can bring together the work of all age groups. We can teach children how to think creatively and express themselves regardless of skill level or interest in the arts and have vast experience in helping particular children focus and engage. We can link to the curriculum in a number of ways, through the subject matter of the artworks or even the methodology of the lessons we present. We are always happy to help schools with funding applications. Brick Project want to meet the needs of your school, so please contact us using the form below.

GALLERY SPACES AND EXHIBITIONS: Brick Project collaborate with art galleries to curate visitor built collaborative painting installations. Our exhibitions place a value on the empowerment of individuals to express themselves and family participation. Hands on, community developed public art is highly engaging for all generations, giving visitors agency in the public realm. Our projects create a play space culminating in an exhibition built by children and adults that can be displayed as public and political art. As a project develops it's visceral dynamism changes rapidly and encourages repeat visits, encouraging a noticeable sense of hype around a gallery space.

COMMUNITY PROJECTS: ​ Communities are where we began increasing accessibility in public art and we want to continue making small, medium, big and colossal projects worldwide. Brick Project allow public art to authentically channel a community's creative potential. Maybe you know of a site where we could develop an inclusive collaborative painting project? Perhaps you own a building with a big brick wall that is looking a little worse for wear? Perhaps you just want to put on a community event and create a community mandala to commemorate it? If you think Brick Project can help your community, please fill out the form below; we want to collaborate with you.
