Truro BID

Pydar Pop-Up

Construction is planned to start for the Pydar Regeneration Project in January 2021. As part of the project, and with funding from Cornwall Council, the former Hardy's Carpet Unit has been turned into a community space whilst regeneration plans are being developed. This 'Pydar Pop-Up' space, which we lease, can be booked for community activities, meetings and light entertainment. We're managing bookings so contact alun.jones@trurobid.co.uk for details. See Cornwall Councils media release for the more information about the Pydar Regeneration Project


Call for Artists to Create Mural

The Pydar Pop up has a blank wall for a collaborative piece of artwork to be created by an artist and delivered in collaboration with the community members of Truro. This artwork will form the part of the backdrop to the space. It will be in place while Pydar Pop Up exists and then the plan is for the for the artwork to find a new home within the main Pydar Street development.

This project is run by a steering group made of members of Cornwall Council, Truro City Council, and other representatives of Truro‚Äôs community.  

We are looking for an artist with the skills and vision to create a bold mural work which responds to and enables residents/visitors to explore the themes and stories of Truro. The selected artist will engage with diverse members of the community to create this mural. For details please have a look at the Pydar Pop Up Artists Brief. The deadline to apply is 13th February 2020 with interviews held in Truro on Wednesday 4 March.
