Cathy Wade 'in progress' Exhibition, Launch of 'Star Map' and Lighting Scheme

During her LPAP residency Cathy Wade has researched physical remnants of Longbridge’s heritage, ecology and lighting. She has explored the potential for Longbridge to retain its industrial past as well as the creation of new gateways to the development.

The launch event included a tour led by the artist around Longbridge of the ‘Star Map’ installation and the new lighting and planting scheme she has created with St Modwen for the town centre.

As part of this ongoing work in progress Wade has launched the next phase of her LPAP work, ‘Wild Longbridge’. This is in partnership with Incredible Edible Longbridge by Northfield Ecocentre and collaboratively explores how planting, growing and eating can be a shared activity used to enhance the built and social environment.
