Join us for a walk around Southwark Park starting in the gallery garden looking at the original Southwark ‘beautification’ projects. This workshop led by artist Charlie Fox will investigate aspects of the beautiful corresponding & responding to Pickstone’s other stories exhibition.
The Beautification Committee, launched by Ada Salter in 1920, played a key role within Southwark, creating many of the green spaces, mature trees and landscaping schemes that form an integral part of the Borough’s current environment and feel. At the time ada salter proudly proclaimed: “the cultivation of flowers and trees is a civic duty.”
