Festive Road believe that art crosses all barriers – giving people a commonality, beyond language and cultural & physical differences. Their focus is on a collective output with an ethos of inclusivity, collaboration and green credentials. They want to positively influence the way participatory and outdoor art is created across the UK. Their approach is always innovative: using recycled materials, mixed media, music, movement and invented techniques; they create costumes, mobile structures, performance and outdoor installations; all as vehicles for collaborative expression.
The work brings people of all cultures, abilities and ages together, with an emphasis on community cohesion, confidence building, creative skills and cultural celebration, providing creative activities for community groups, family learning and in educational settings. They also provide training, skills development and employment opportunities for artists, volunteers and trainees.
Festive Road’s artwork for ROCLA
Festive Road were asked to design an arrival installation for Redhouse Park, in the form of three bicycles mounted on lamp-posts each increasing in size each with a seated character giving chase to the one in front. Clive Doherty, Creative & Technical Director has captured the comedy in this trio who will be sited in a row in front of the Big Tree on Lime Kiln Way adjacent to the redway.
