Bedford Creative Arts is hosting a fun day for residents to inspire a new look.
Chief executive Dawn Giles said: “Our new logo, like our programme, wouldn’t exist without the involvement of the public.
“As an organisation we are brought to life by the people, artists and communities that get involved in the work we do, and this will continue to be at the heart of our ethos.”
She added: “We’ll always be locally focused and will continue to work closely with the community which has made us what we are today.”

The BCA team will be at The Lane, on Saturday, March 12, from 10am to 4pm with well-known Bedford artist David Litchfield, creative agency We Can Creative, a Lone Morris dancer, musicians and lots of pens.
Dawn added: “There will also be cake on offer to fuel your creative spirit. There is nothing to stop you from helping this work in progress!”
Each year Bedford Creative Arts commissions new work that sets out to enliven and invigorate communities.
Past projects include Lace in Place, where large-scale hand-made lace adorned the exterior of 1 St Paul’s Square; Bedford Voices, which harnessed the power of billboard advertising to give voice to the diverse communities of Bedford; and the Concerto Magnificent: An Anthology of all Things involving hundreds of local people contributing lyrics, a new community choir and a spectacular performance.
