Deveron Projects has built up a sizeable archive of books, music, essays, films and other digital and physical records over the years. All of this is available to everyone and ensures that the projects, outputs and outcomes live on in the town and beyond.
Our Town Collection forms part of this, with works by past resident artists displayed across shops, schools, the train station and many other places in and out of town.
Our small library focuses mainly on two fields of discourse:
Socially Engaged Art
Since 2007 Deveron Projects has been developing a specialist library of collaborative / socially engaged material. The library contains an archive of all our past projects, as well as wide variety of books on subjects ranging from socially engaged art, community art practices, artists' monographs, exhibition catalogues as well as thematic sections on identity, environment, multigenerational issues and heritage. The library also holds an extensive archive of past projects by resident artists and a collection of contemporary art magazines such as Frieze, a-n, ART, Art Forum, Map and Cake.
The Walking Institute library consists of a growing collection that relates to our interest in walking and the human pace. For this we are gathering books and other items that relate to the Walking + Art discourse, as well as a range of travel books, walking books, maps and guides.
We also hold a small collection of books and research chosen by each artist in residence.
