SKDC’s cultural plans include support for the creative sector and the promotion of those who live in the district and work in the industry.
After an open call to local creatives back in February the SK Creatives Profiles are now on display on Ironmongers Street, Stamford until mid-August 2021.
Councillor Rosemary Trollope-Bellew, the Cabinet Member for Culture and Visitor Economy, said: “Before Covid-19 struck, South Kesteven’s highly-skilled creative industry was vibrant, diverse and successful. The sector has been hit hard during the pandemic but celebrating the talent we have right on our doorstep over the coming months will help support its road to recovery.”
The outdoor exhibition features profiles of 32 artists and creatives from across the SKDC area and artforms are as diverse as upholstery, stained glass, painting, graphic design and copperwork.
SKDC Arts Project Officer Jo Dobbs said: “Thank you to all the artists, designers and makers who submitted applications for this exhibition, we have a super selection of art practices and a good geographical spread which celebrates our creative talent.”
SK Creatives profiles for the Art Windows in Stamford is a collaboration between South Kesteven District Council’s Cultural Services and Art Pop-Up, an innovative, non-profit, contemporary arts organisation.
