Do you walk past Bedford’s monuments and statues without a second glance on a daily basis? Do you know their meaning?

Renowned choreographer and photographer Mickael Marso Riviere , international street dancer Si Rawlinson and a troupe of young street dancers from Bedford fused photography, live art and Hip Hop/Breakin dance to challenge our perspective of the well-known Silver Faces sculpture.

For two weeks Bedford Creative Arts transformed the windows of the Sports Traider shop on Silver Street into a gallery displaying Marso’s images of the event.

Mini commissions are open to professional and amateur artists, curators and producers living in the five counties area around Bedford. Each season we award £500 to a great idea that aligns with our artistic policy.Visit our past projects archive to read about previous mini commission winners, Kristian Purcell, Aaron Head, Kezia Ruth, Liz Wright and Jan Uprichard.
