Social Canvas: Launching a new Public Art Initiative: Sri Lanka

The British Council's public art initiative in Colombo, Sri Lanka, entitled 'Social Canvas' took place in July 2014, headed by Modus Operandi Director Vivien Lovell. The project comprised a symposium followed by a three-day workshop involving forty-five artists of various disciplines. Four teams of artists created speculative proposals for public art installations that addressed current social and environmental issues, focusing on four locations in Colombo.
