Circling the Square was formed in 2002 by
artist Tim Ward who graduated from Goldsmiths' College, London in 1980
with a degree in Fine Art. Since then Tim has worked extensively in designing,
managing and implementing public art projects and creative programmes
within regeneration schemes.
Circling the Square's commitments are:
- The application of artistic principles to urban design, in
working to create places rich in meaning, dramatic in appearance and individual
- Collaborative working on delivering projects, from initiating strategies
to the implementation of innovative projects.
- Engaging all sectors of culturally diverse communities to tackle
local issues and developing creative solutions.
- Promoting high quality environmental, social & cultural regeneration
projects that deliver on creating the urban and rural renaissance.
A key element in all our work is the ability to work in partnership with local
communities and establishing participation programmes that enable them
significant contribution in shaping their environment. Circling the
Square brings a creative approach to projects; from identifying opportunities
for innovative projects, costing & programming work, fundraising,
developing imaginative ways of engaging local communities to contracting
artists, craftspeople and specialist fabricators.
