The green spaces in Maindee have always been a priority for Finding Maindee.

A few weeks ago, Maindee Unlimited invited applications for a Sound Artist, or Artists, to produce a new art installation for the newly refurbished Maindee Library building, with the commissioned work to be situated and made in response to aspects of the social and cultural ecology of Maindee.
Beyond this remit, the brief was open, and our plans for the outcome equally so.
This blog post will detail the choices and decisions we made to appoint a Sound Artist.
