Pick of the Week 2016

March's Guest Editor: Suzanne Heath

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 March we welcome freelance Project Manager and Curator, Suzanne Heath.

Suzanne Heath is a freelance Project Manager and Curator based in Bath. She works primarily on new commissions and events within the public realm. Suzanne originally studied History of Art and worked for the Lakeland Arts Trust before moving into Arts Development with a focus on public art commissioning. Since coming to the South West six years ago she has worked in Bristol, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire and the Blackdown Hills, writing arts strategies, curating and managing projects and commissions including an artist-designed greenhouse by Danish artist/architects N55. She has a wide field of interest ranging from fine art to architecture, design and craft and is particularly interested in the points at which these category boundaries become blurred. 

Suzanne is currently working on behalf of Field Art Projects to deliver a permanent public realm commission by Folkestone Triennial artist Sarah Staton at the University of Bristol. She is also working on behalf of Ginkgo Projects in Chipping Sodbury on a series of bird feeders designed by artist Alastair Mackie. Suzanne is developing a creative programme for Mulberry Park, a new large-scale development in Bath, and overseeing a programme of Arts Council and Lottery funded temporary and permanent commissions for Baltic Wharf, a development in Totnes. The Baltic Wharf programme includes the production of a permanent 'natural play' artist commission, bespoke artist-designed street furniture and a programme of creative workshops, talks and walks including Saw Waves, a temporary audio/sculptural artwork by Juneau Projects.
