Brick Project CIC

Brick Project is a com­mu­ni­ty inter­est com­pa­ny who allow peo­ple to take col­lec­tive own­er­ship of an area by cre­at­ing a per­ma­nent pub­lic piece

Brick Project creates social painting activities that draw communities together. We invite participants to paint an individual piece of art that forms part of a collective mural: - in a Brick Project (taking place on a public brick wall) - or a Mandala Project (a portable version, where each circle is a piece of a Mandala, an ancient circular mind map). We take commissions and bookings internationally.

Brick Project evolved from a piece of work from director Dan Petley in 2011, connecting with Fraisia Bruist Papazian to become a UK-based community interest company (CIC) in 2019.

We facilitate the creation of thousands of mini-artworks created by local people. These become a physical and digital archive of the project itself and the community who took part.

Working at unloved or neglected bricked or tiled public areas, Brick Project's main objectives are:
- improving the environment people are living in by developing an event, creating a memory of place for years to come.
- facilitating a collaborative activity where people of different backgrounds can work cooperatively on a permanent public art piece.
