AiR
  • it felt good to see the bigger me

  • an art not community project, but community was one effect of the art

  • pleasant persistence, joyful outcomes

  • I didn’t see that coming

  • AiR is thinking tangentially

  • those walks opened more than my eyes

  • you found the magic that we didn’t know was here

  • I’m not sure where else I have the luxury of listening like this

  • a delicious moment of radical openness

  • being in a place one knows earlier, later, longer than customary

  • an ethical position suggested in secular acts

  • politely defiant – never anarchy but never business as usual either

  • a jolt, a space, a small adventure

  • little fissures in the everyday run of things

  • a new space for relating to somebody who I might never have met

AiR makes art in the everyday – a dance on a floodwall, a play in a café, a tree on wheels, a poem in a bowling alley, a song in a subway.

AiR curates an art of publicness – bringing landscapes, people, and ideas into productive collision – prompting unlikely and progressive encounters, conversations, and actions in a local. 

AiR are spatial practitioners – artists, architects, dancers, musicians, writers – valuing embodied experience and prioritising movement.

Since 2007 we have partnered with local authorities, education, housing, and community organisations to realise over four hundred public artworks alongside walks, exhibitions, festivals, talks, screenings, symposiums, academic and life-long learning projects, digital and print publications.
