Residents urged to have their say on Redditch Colour Palette project

Redditch Editorial 5th Mar, 2024   0

PEOPLE in the borough have the opportunity to shape Reimagine Redditch’s next project, which will see artworks installed in public places this spring.

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

When everyone’s ideas are in, a panel of local people will make a shortlist of their favourite colours.

Then, a public vote will decide the winning colours that form Redditch’s distinctive palette.

The final palette will be announced in April.

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.




The borough’s dedicated creative and cultural programme, Reimagine Redditch, has partnered with The Colour Palette Company, Redditch BID and the Kingfisher Shopping Centre, to develop the project with local people.

Artist Stacey Barnfield, from The Colour Palette Company, said: “The Colour Palette artworks are all about celebrating local – 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.”

Richard Bromhall, programme director for Reimagine Redditch, said: “Redditch has a vibrant and long-standing creative tradition – from manufacturing the world’s needles and installing great mosaics, to the brilliant community-run creative groups that communities run all over Redditch today.

“So, we’re delighted that we can add to our history by creating this landmark project together as a community.

“This palette will be designed and used by people in Redditch, and we can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.”
