Something More Permanent Than Concrete

Ellen Wilkinson: Something more permanent than concrete

For the Orchard Engagement Programme, writer Ellen Wilkinson has produced a collection of short statements that evoke ideas about future possibilities. The printed ‘slogans’ are designed to be made into badges that reference the bright, playful design of fruit stickers. Different editions can be collected and edited to read something unique by each wearer. A bag of seeds and planting instructions are also offered, with the hope that, like the badges, the project will be spread by the people who take part.

A badge-making machine is available from Whitchurch Library and on Saturday 25 March 2017, Ellen hosted a badge-making stall at Whitchurch Carboot sale.

Future Perfect is commissioned by Bristol City Council and is the first public art programme to be funded through a Neighbourhood Partnership in which governance is extended to members of the Hengrove community. Contact   Legal
