We would be delighted to welcome you to a drinks reception to launch ‘A Guide to Commissioning Public Art’, produced by the British Property Federation and Contemporary Art Society.
As developers increasingly commission public art as part of their projects, this guide seeks to provide some top tips and best practice examples. We hope the wider development community will find such a guide helpful and that it promotes and confirms cultural investment as an important contributor to placemaking. With many thanks to the Contemporary Art Society’s Consultancy team for its expertise.
Please come and join us at U+I’s fabulous HQ for wine and canapés on 3 October 2017.
Ian Fletcher, Director of Policy (Real Estate), British Property Federation
Fabienne Nicholas, Head of Consultancy, Contemporary Art Society
Neil Young, Chief Executive Officer, Get Living London
