Performance, sustainable futures and community experiment: Enjoyment, play and engagement through the senses

  1. 1. • 1) How, and in what ways, does site-based, public art allow the spectator/critic to practise ecology and location? • 2) What forms of meaning or knowledge does site-based, public art produce, and what is their status? • 3) What types of writing or techniques of enunication does the practice of site-based, public art simultaneously require and produce?
  2. 2. Friends, citizens, fellow cyclists, we’re here this evening to celebrate. To celebrate our ability to live alongside one another. To celebrate the potential of outdoor space. In short to celebrate Bowthorpe. Forty years ago some bold decisions were made. Those decisions brought Bowthorpe into being. Those decisions added four and a half thousand new homes to the city of Norwich. Those decisions put council houses next to private houses next to housing association flats. Those decisions meant that cyclists and pedestrians could go straight from A to B, while motorists went the long way round. Those decisions made Bowthorpe a habitable place. • Now we want what Bowthorpe’s got. We want the whole of the world to have what Norwich’s got. (Townley and Bradby, 2011).
