Clock People (Public Art Gathering)

Four Art Events from November 07 – March 08 for the people of Abbeyview, in the Abbeyview Community Centre, Dunfemline FIFE K11 4HA

 

The Clock People comes from the idea that a public art piece should be useful, beautiful and be the central point for the people of the area, just like a telling the time.

 

People attending these events will experience various ideas on the notion and definition of public art, with a chance to freely discuss their opinions. Each of the evenings’ discussions will determine the future of Public art in Abbeyview.


The events promise to be an all round exciting experience, with a strong visual and audio backdrop to inspire and provoke opinion. All members of the community are welcome. Look out for the Posters displayed around Abbeyview. Refreshments will be served.
