Nottingham's Creative Quarter 'Articulture' Project

The Creative Quarter Articulture project began as a pilot during the Spring and Summer of 2014. Project managed by Helen Taylor and Sarah Manton its aim was to improve the retail area of Hockley by the incorporation of quirky planters and art representing nature. The project was a success and over 30 businesses were involved, the overall streetscape improved and Articulture won an RHS 'Its Your Neighbourhood' award, contributed to the success of Nottingham's In Bloom' award and the Business Improvement District (BID) Silver Gilt award.

The project has continued throughout 2015. We aim to build the Arcticulture community by encouraging more businesses to participate and work together to improve the area for the benefit of all. So far we have had a great response and the streets of Hockley are looking great! In August the first Articulture Green Streets festival will be held on Heathcote Street, showcasing horticulture, local produce and greening the streets of Nottingham. Keep updated on the festival via our social media @CQArticulture!
