Nicky was asked by the Borough of Poole (now part of BCP Council), to develop the public art strategy and lead on the commissioning of creative, place-making interventions for the new Townside highways scheme in Poole’s town centre.

Artist Michael Condron was commissioned to create two gateway sculptural pieces – ‘Bottle Knot’ and ‘Birds’ – to ‘top and tail’ the scheme and Dallas Pierce Quintero were commissioned to create a trail of navigation way-markers and street furniture across the site, to encourage people from the town centre to the water’s edge of Holes Bay.

The scheme was funded by the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership. Both commissions were installed in early 2022.
