Festive Road – we believe that art crosses all barriers – giving people a commonality, beyond language and cultural & physical differences. Our focus is on a collective output with an ethos of inclusivity, collaboration and green credentials. We want to positively influence the way participatory and outdoor art is created across the UK. Our approach is always innovative: using recycled materials, mixed media, music, movement and invented techniques; we create costumes, mobile structures, performance and outdoor installations; all as vehicles for collaborative expression.
Our work brings people of all cultures, abilities and ages together, with an emphasis on community cohesion, confidence building, creative skills and cultural celebration. We provide creative activities for community groups, family learning and in educational settings. We also provide training, skills development and employment opportunities for artists, volunteers and trainees.
Festive Road’s artwork for ROCLA – Returning from a bike ride
Festive Road were asked to design an arrival installation for Redhouse Park, in the form of three bicycles mounted on lamp-posts each increasing in size each with a seated character giving chase to the one in front. Clive Doherty, Creative & Technical Director has captured the comedy in this trio which is sited in a row in front of the Big Tree on Lime Kiln Way adjacent to the redway.
The image shows Clive Doherty, Technical Director of Festive Road who made the sculpture Returning from a bike ride that is situated on Lime Kiln Way by the redway.
