Kerry Russell has designed, developed and executed a number of community based public art projects for local residents. Kerry Understands the need for public consultation and believes strongly in developing concepts that utilise ideas taken from residents and translates them into meaningful projects that are realistic in both time and budget, whilst still retaining their design integrity.
Public art can be a great challenge. Getting the right balance between creative vision, practical constraints, consultation, budget and timeframe can make all the difference when striving for a successful outcome. Kerry is a confident team member and enjoys creative collaboration when working on large projects. My strengths lie in engagement and consultation alongside the design & technical process.
Since 2007 Kerry has been involved in developing and running a variety of workshops for a number of private and community organisations. Workshops range from using recycled materials, clay work, textiles and celebratory arts for festivals. She regularly works with young children, vulnerable adults, youth theatre, women’s groups, festival organisers & local schools
Kerry Russell is chair of Phoenix52 Community Arts, a group run by and for residents living in East Bristol which delivers a range of creative opportunities and activities in the community.
