Inspired by Anthony Gormley's people on a plinth participation project in Trafalgar Square in London, the Open Council has set up a similar project for members in Newcastle. We believe that our urban environment is littered with plinths just waiting to be used, so if you feel like standing out from the crowd, on the plinth of your choice, just contact the Open Council with your desired location and we will make it happen for you.

Below are some of the events that the Open Council has made happen.

See the Open Council's report on Anthony Gormely's people on the plinth project here.
