Our Story

We make things happen

Made Public make things happen. Whether we are converting a disused, run down nightclub into a fully functioning business hub, installing bold, large-scale murals throughout our town or transforming shopping centres with our innovative vision, we continuously deliver creative, dynamic solutions for our clients.

Our approach is simple; be bold, be unique and always push the boundaries. Three unassuming statements that when used simultaneously lead to unique ideas and pioneering outcomes.

In 2012, back when Made Public was called ‘Sarah Walters’ it was awarded its first £1000 grant. Fast forward five years and Made Public is now a fully-fledged CIC, employing a talented, multi-discipline team of over 10.

We have active partnerships with the London Borough of Havering and The Greater London Authority, the latter having invested over £350,000 into Made Public enabling us to facilitate and manage the creative regeneration of Romford. It is fair to say we’ve enjoyed flexing our creative muscles in good old RM1.
