A placemaking agency using cultural strategies to create new destinations

Masterwərks coordinates between artists and communities to author stories for new places worldwide. Through inspirational cultural projects and a holistic understanding of a locality and its people, we deliver strategies that transform the meaning of place.

Our ethos is that human society is founded in culture, which furthers our wellbeing and the narrative for our lives. We prioritise  community engagement including on the ground research and events, putting down roots that can deliver on anything from one-off festivals to longstanding artist residencies.

By providing close guidance and support drawn from a decade of experience, we help clients understand and implement their own strategies. We design flagship cultural partnerships, and through our public arts team deliver projects from the drawing board into the street. If art is a catalyst for social, environmental and economic growth, we want Masterwərks to be that catalyst.
