Collective Response Project

Collective Response Project

Two artists, Sue Shields and Emily Bowers, worked with four groups of young people from West Town Primary Academy, Peterborough Home Education and the Iqra Academy over several days. Pupils explored Vivacity’s sculpture collection at Thorpe Meadows, created artwork inspired by the exhibitions on display at City Gallery and learnt how to transform ideas and drawings into three dimensional designs. Activities included building land art using natural materials, carving designs into plaster, casting and creating sculptures based on stories and folklore. The project culminated in a public exhibition at the City Gallery, Peterborough Museum.


Collective Response is a project funded by the Ernest Cook Trust and Vivacity Culture and Leisure.
