SUMMER UPDATE 2017

SPECULATIVE
MILTON WRECK – a landmark of childhood.

Funded by Arts Council Grants for the Arts CONCRETE+CLAY was Beacon Bureau’s first project and proved to be a great success. For those of you who were unable come to the exhibition images can be found here: https://beaconbureau.co.uk/proactive/concrete-and-clay/exhibition-images/
This funding has also allowed me to work with Mark Segal of The Artist Agency https://www.theartistsagency.co.uk to develop and establish a workable framework for Beacon Bureau in which my skills, knowledge and experience can be utilised by being:

  • PROACTIVE – To actively seek out and provide opportunities for me to collaborate with others whose interests are congruent with my own.
  • SPECULATIVE – To engage in speculative creative activity to ensure pertinent projects are under development.
  • SUPPORTIVE – To offer advice and support to artists and small arts organisations develop and achieve their artistic ambition.
    All this has now been to brought together here:

Have a good summer.

Best wishes
