wintervention

Wintervention explored how natural materials could be used in our work to minimise these effect of putting non-degradable materials into the environment as part of our practice.

We took advantage of a cold snap to use snow and ice to make lanterns. Initially made from snow balls and built outside friends' houses, we subsequently developed the use of a mould to place lanterns throughout Chorlton.

Although a cold experience, it was fun to talk to passers by about the work and enjoyable to see how others slowed down for a minute to have a look and wonder what it was all about!

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
