New high quality permanent and temporary artworks, specifically linked to heritage initiatives and reflecting local character, building skills of local people and demand for an improved environment
Since Transported was launched in 2013, we have worked with a number of different organisations and community groups to commission new public artworks in multiple locations across Boston & South Holland. Take a look at this Google Map to find out where they are, and the story behind them.

“The Haven Commissions” – three commissions to create a series of redesigned buoys and a minimum of three new structures, constructed between 2019 & 2020 – have recently been advertised and shortlisted:
- one or more structure (s) to be situated at the Pilgrim Fathers Memorial at Scotia Creek (Fishtoft, Boston)
