beam - arts, people, places

Welcome to Beam

Beam is a company dedicated to the imaginative understanding and improvement of the public realm.

We aim:

  • To create better understanding about the importance of the arts and good design;
  • To make stronger connections between professionals and the public; and
  • To celebrate the arts and good design in places and spaces as a powerful contributor to personal, economic and community wellbeing.

Put simply our mission is…

To help people make great places — to live, work and play in.
