In 2010 Futurecity wrote a strategic public art strategy for Great Kneighton (then known as Clay Farm and Glebe Farm) for Countryside Properties. The aim is to embed the best public art and cultural projects into a large new community. Leading UK and international artists have been commissioned. Working across a range of disciplines: Biodiversity, Play, Sustainability, Community Development, Landscape design, History and Heritage, Food and Growing, Health and Wellbeing.
Across this large site, 6 lead artists are creating innovative place-making projects, some permanent pieces of art, some temporary that focus on connecting people to place.
The vision for the Southern Fringe is to create a distinctive urban extension to Cambridge, as an exciting demonstration of best practice in sustainable development.
