for London’s Secret Garden Project.
The Secret Garden Project is a new programme of temporary commissions and pop up art events by young and established artists that will create a trail of London’s secret gardens, lesser known green spaces, and urban corners. The project aims to bring high quality art projects and events to London’s public realm; raise awareness of the ecological and cultural value of urban green space; encourage an understanding and engagement with ecology and biodiversity, create opportunities for community engagement and collaboration and encourage innovation.
