St Peter’s & St Paul’s Art Action Group​

St Peter’s & St Paul’s Arts Action Group was formed by Sarah Bowden in 2016 as a collaboration between Hardwick Gallery​ and Take A Part CIC​, with local residents and researchers at UoG.

Through regular meetings the Arts Action Group steers commissions and public events that aim to connect communities, increase opportunities for people to engage with creativity, and to change perceptions of the area.

In 2017 Love St Peter’s, Love St Paul’s was devised and the AAG obtained Arts Council funding to commission four contemporary artists to work with groups of residents to investigate the history of the locality through creative practice.

A further project, DIG! is in development for production in 2019 facilitated by Sarah Bowden with lead artist Jessie Brennan, in partnership with local and national organisations.

This two-stranded project will deliver a training & mentoring programme for local artists and crafts people, and a contemporary artist commission to devise a year-long programme of arts activities that will culminate in a celebratory festival and showcase at Hardwick Gallery.​​
