Curators and funders

Wonders of Weston was developed as part of the nationally acclaimed Sea Change programme (2008 - 2010), managed by Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE 1999 - 2011) on behalf of DCMS. Situations and Field Art Projects were selected by North Somerset Council to co-curate a series of commissions for the town. Sea Change is a capital grants programme over three years that grants awards to local authorities. Its aim is to use culture to make a difference to seaside resorts, contributing to sustainable, social and economic regeneration.

Situations is a public art commissioning and research programme based at the University of the West of England, Bristol, experienced in commissioning innovative artists' projects outside conventional gallery or museum contexts, and developing curatorial research, public events, talks and seminars and publications.

Field Art Projects is an art consultancy that operates in the public realm. Field Art Projects believes that art and design can play an invaluable role in enhancing our enjoyment of the urban and rural environment. It has a decade of experience commissioning visual artists, designers and performers to create permanent and temporary public artworks.

North Somerset Council used the Sea Change grant to fund a number of cultural initiatives throughout the town and seafront. To find out more about the other initiatives benefitting from North Somerset Council's Sea Change programme, please click here
