Bedford Creative Arts

Take Part Queens Park is an art project created with the community of Queens Park and Bedford Creative Arts (BCA). 

BCA appointed 3 artists to work with the community – Caroline Wendling investigates the idea of place through memories. Andy Holden and Mira Calix are collaborating on a sound work – ‘We Are Heard’ – conjuring the ambient sounds of Queens Park.

Originally conceived as a series of workshops and events before the pandemic forced a re-think. 

During the first lock-down we designed a series of worksheets with the artists, which along with art materials were distributed as art packs to 1,500 homes in the Queens Park area. In the second lock-down the project moved online as a series of creative video tutorials under the Make & Share banner. We designed film titles and a social media campaign of short animations to support each film.
