This report charts the journey of the Olympic Delivery Authority’s Arts and Culture programme and outlines recommendations and lessons learned that can be used by regeneration bodies, developers, local authorities, policy makers, commissioners, funders, curators and Olympic host cities, when embarking on art commissioning schemes and regeneration projects in the future. It also includes recommendations specifically for the future of the Olympic Park in London.
The ODA programme includes permanent art commissions that are being integrated into the public realm, as well as residencies and participatory projects in the Host Boroughs, by international and emerging artists.
The programme is contextualised in this report through a number of case studies of recent art commissioning programmes both in the UK and abroad.
