Ground Up was established in 2003 by Clare Arts Office and curated by the Arts Office’s regional arts co-ordinator, Fiona Woods, herself a practising artist.
A number of artists, including Fiona, were invited to engage in a relatively short, collective research process, which had an inbuilt training and mentoring budget that they could spend as they chose. A broadsheet publication arose from this process, as did the name Ground Up.
Some artists were subsequently commissioned to carry out temporary public works, following an independent selection process, which also involved research stages of various lengths.
