Our first mini commission project took place in February 2012 – where we invaded Church Arcade, in Bedford’s town centre, with local painter Kristian Purcell. We transformed an empty shop into an artist’s studio, exposing the town to the artist’s normally private creative practice. Saturday and Sunday passed busily with Kristian completing several self portraits, amidst the public passing by and popping in to chat with the artist about his work.

This was the first execution of our mini commissions, where we invited proposals from professional and amateur artists, curators and producers living in the Bedfordshire area who had a good idea that aligned with our artistic policy. The successful applicants were awarded £500 to help make their idea happen.
