At various sites around Sedgemoor advertising is being replaced by a message
from Seed asking various questions big questions, all starting with the words ‘What If?’
Director of Seed, Scott O’Hara explains “What if our world was more creative? What if we could
create the future? What if we asked the questions? What if adults never stopped imagining?”.
These are the sorts of questions that the worlds artists and the worlds’ greatest problem solvers
tend to ask. We are inviting everyone to join in the process of asking these big questions and
working creatively to find some answers”
Alongside four local artists, members of the community in Bridgwater, Highbridge and the local
areas will have the opportunity to create artwork that poses and reflects on big issues and will be
displayed in places usually used for advertising around Bridgwater and Highbridge as well as on
the buses of Somerset.
Through a series of workshops and sessions, members of the public will work with Karl Bevis, Jem
Dick, Sharon Jacksties and Rich Tomlinson to challenge your imagination and ideas to create
something wonderful for the whole community to see and share. The artists will also be popping
up in various Sedgemoor locations to ask What If questions and offer creative ways to tackle
Your creative response to these questions could be through poetry and words, visual art or
photography and there are several ways to get involved.
