This blog has been developed to record the development of a public art feasibility, that explores the possibility of a broad future celebration of the dynamic NW aerospace manufacturing industries. This has been prepared by Ian Banks of appointed collaborative consultants Atoll  working for commissioning body Lancashire County Council - see his initial vision presented at interview below:
Atoll BAE 30Nov10

Beyond this, any engagement of future potential creative partners will depend on a number of factors, including the views of  all core stakeholders (including the separate Task and Finish Group and Steering Group), the set brief, the cultural aims and objectives, and timescales and budget. As such, the existing stakeholders are:

Lancashire County Council
BAE Systems

Other potential stakeholders currently being contacted by Atoll include:

NW Aerospace Alliance key members 
Royal Aeronautical Society 
NWDA and future regional / sub regional governance after 2012
REMADE (Reclamation and Management of Derelict Land)
