September – December 2020
Artists Juneau Projects are joining us for Common Ground from September 2020.
Juneau Projects was formed in 2001 by Philip Duckworth and Ben Sadler. They work across a broad range of media including painting, sculpture, performance, music and installation. Much of their work is made in collaboration with other people and focuses on the relationship between society, culture and the natural world. They are interested in how nature is perceived through the lens of technology, folk art and other forms of cultural mediation.
Recent projects have focussed on working collaboratively with groups of people to create publications, animations and permanent artworks. These projects are designed to allow large numbers of people to contribute to the production of one piece: from painting an individual animation frame to creating a book illustration or helping to design a piece of public sculpture.

Great Linford Ecology Project
From September, Juneau Projects will be working with local groups and organisations in Milton Keynes in creating temporary public art works and resources for and about Great Linford Manor Park. Contributors will be invited to bring elements of their lives and identities to be shared. Then, environmentally sustainable materials will be used to create the artworks, linking to the Heritage Day Open theme of ‘Hidden Nature’.
We are currently developing an online consultation programme for people who would like to get involved with the project. Watch this space for more information and how to get involved.
