Pick of the Week 2014

February's Guest Editor: Claire Carroll

Every month we invite a Guest Editor to select our Pick of the Week feature. Chosen from the activities listed in our events pages they select highlights from across the region.

This February we welcome Claire Carroll:

Claire Carroll is a creative producer and project coordinator based in Frome, Somerset.  She divides her time between directing the arts programme at Rook Lane and working with Foreground Projects on production, coordination and delivery of exhibitions and public realm projects. Claire’s practice is rooted in a desire to make visual arts of the highest quality accessible to a wider audience by utilising unexpected public spaces and buildings, and working with communities in urban and rural settings to support development of their own creative ecology.

Rook Lane is a unique space in the heart of Frome, housing a dynamic cross-pollination of art, architecture and ideas.  Housed in an 18th century dissenters’ chapel, restored by NVB Architects in 2002, the space now serves as a performance venue, gallery and architecture studio. 

Foreground Projects is a commissioning organisation established to realise significant contemporary art projects in the South West and develop new, socially diverse audiences for critically engaged contemporary art through accompanying outreach and education initiatives.
