winnicott light boxes

Three lightboxes commissioned for the corridor at The Winnicott Centre - the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service at Manchester Children's Hospital.

The lightboxes were an integral part of a project commissioned and lead by Dawn Prescott at Lime Art - its aim to revitalise spaces within the centre. Central to the scheme was detailed consultation and engagement with staff and service users. Workshops were run by Sarah Whitfield and the colours, textures and themes taken from the designs participants created and printed onto diffuser sheet.

The light frames themselves were CNC cut at The Making Rooms in Blackburn before being hand assembled and finished at our in-house workshop. t:+44 (0) 774 884 7029

we are BREAD art

We create unexpected encounters which gently ask you to slow down, stop for a moment and take in your surroundings in the hope that you'll notice something new.

We are artists, makers and creative thinkers, with strong social focus, inspired by spaces and the public realm. We use light, sound and interactive technologies to create the unexpected and seemingly impossible.

We create original and engaging works - multi-sensory experiences, often integrating visual, audible and interactive elements, that invite discovery, develop a sense of place, and encourage audience interactivity with both the work and each other.

We have wide expertise. We develop exciting and ambitious projects. Our creative thinking is backed by the experience to deliver. We work across varied locations, indoors and out, in harsh environments and on sensitive sites.

Our work ranges from community consultation and design and build for the public realm to bespoke creative technology development for private projects. Clients include local authorities, arts organisations, national museums and international companies.

Access to art and creativity is empowering. It engenders a feeling of having a voice, develops a profound sense of identity, ownership of and belonging to the places where we live, and provides a forum from which to explore our own surroundings and links to others.

BREAD delivered its first project in 2009 and is led by David Boultbee t:+44 (0) 774 884 7029
