Eventbrite - GROUNDWERK 2.1 Artist Development Workshop // Making Work for Public Spaces

In this free artists’ workshop, learn about what it means to make work in public space today with Lucy Joyce.

We will consider questions around ownership of space, accessibility, working with commissioning bodies and making art for strangers. This will be a chance for you to discuss with the artist how you might go about making work in public space, so do bring your ideas.


Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice.

This workshop is free to attend and open to all but booking is recommended as spaces are limited.



Lucy has exhibited internationally. In July 2017 she had a solo exhibition Proposals + Props at Chalton Gallery, London and was part of the group exhibition House Work at 53 Beck Road, London in June 2017. She was selected for The London Open at Whitechapel Gallery, 2015 and Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2014. Lucy has worked on major public commissions in North Woolwich and Sittingbourne and is currently working on a series of temporary interventions and actions testing out ideas and approaches to working in the public realm in Milton Keynes.

Lucy Joyce completed a residency with Tate St Ives at the Porthmeor Studio 5 earlier this year, where she was developing work in the studio towards a new site-specific art work that will take place in St Ives in January 2018, as part of the Artist’s Programme.
