OUR DOMAIN: A collaborative and participatory art project in Reading

The Our Domain Team is delighted to announce that the three-dimensional public artwork ‘Mantlepiece’ is now being submitted for planning approval.

The application represents the final stage in a collaborative and participatory art project that launched last October.


During the project 5 artist teams worked with local organisations and individuals to create proposals for the final artwork. The proposals were all exhibited in the newly completed Resident Lounge at Domain earlier this year. Following the exhibition Mantlepiece was selected to go forward to the final stage, working with the team to prepare a detailed application.
