Get ready for voting to Reimagine Redditch

Redditch Editorial 26th Mar, 2024   0

PEOPLE across borough are being asked to vote for their favourite colours in the next phase of Reimagine Redditch’s project, which will see artworks installed in public places this spring.

The Redditch Colour Palette project will combine colour with people’s experiences of the town.

Similar projects have been developed with the same national artist, Stacey Barnfield, of the Colour Palette Company, for different places and organisations around the world and across the UK.

Richard Bromhall, programme director for Reimagine Redditch, said: “People described our connection to the places we’re twinned with, such as St Elizabeth, Jamaica, the iconic landmarks that make Redditch famous, and about their love for the green spaces that they spend their free time in.

“Alongside a panel of local people, we’ve whittled down hundreds of ideas to a shortlist of 12 – now the rest is up to the people of Redditch.”

People can vote for their favourite two ideas from the shortlist by midnight next Sunday, March 31.




The six most popular choices will go into the final design to be launched in May.

Artist Stacey Barnfield, from The Colour Palette Company, said: “It is all about celebrating the areas we grew up in, the people who inspire us, the places we love and the buildings we cherish.


“It’s wonderful that the Redditch Colour Palette is being shaped by people who live, work and play here.

“My thanks go out to everyone who submitted a suggestion.”

Muj Rahman, BID Manager, said: “The Colour Palette is all about brightening up Redditch’s high streets and communities and gives everybody a chance to see Redditch anew through fresh eyes.

“It’s led by local people and will be a colour palette by them and for them.

“We are delighted to support this initiative and to see the change it will bring to Redditch.”

Voting closes at midnight  Sunday, March 31.
