Didcot is in the heart of Science Vale UK, neighbouring Harwell Campus, Milton Park, Culham Science Park and Didcot Power Station.
To highlight this to local residents and business communities, Didcot First has commissioned local artist Linda Benton to produce the landscape painting of local scientific interest areas. The Science Art Project is expanding to highlight specific organisations and explain the ground-breaking innovation and work going on in the local area.
We are offering a chance to local science, engineering and technological organisations to participate and support in the expansion of the project. As part of your support Didcot First and Linda Benton will meet with an individual within each organisation to create a personal painting featuring the individual and some equipment that they use during their role.
Didcot First will also undertake a short interview about the individual’s day to day role and a description of how they use the equipment contained within their portrait painting.
Didcot First will publish both the portrait and interview on their website and through social media outlets, and will produce posters that will be displayed at Didcot First’s office based within the Orchard Centre. The organisation commissioning the portrait will be able to use the image and interview article for their own website, social media and internal communications and any other appropriate promotional materials.
Finally, once all those organisations wishing to participate have been finalised and the portraits finished, Linda will add these around the outside of the landscape painting to produce one large piece to be used by both Didcot First (and all the participating organisations) to continue to highlight the world-leading research and technology being undertaken in South Oxfordshire.
