The stone sculptures were carved in public places, allowing people to talk to, or observe, the artist creating the art. The project Cycling Salmon featured an artist-led community tile making workshop. The artist, Penny Martyn, incorporated these tiles into her sculpture.

Poet’s Pause used the work of writers by creating a place to inspire and display poetry.

Some form of public involvement is now a requirement for project proposals.
