Join artist Helen Stratford to explore Queen's Park through the eyes of Urban Botanists and other experts. Take part in an interactive tour examining the entry points, thresholds and borders of this maintained natural environment.
Part walk, part survey, part conversation, the tour will explore boundaries between natural and artificial spaces, exotic and native species. In the context of masterplan proposals for the area it will question ideas of connectedness and how you sense the park as part of the town.
This event is part of Market Town, a series of new commissions and critical debate that sets out to re-imagine the future of Loughborough’s high streets led by Radar, LU Arts and Charnwood Arts, in partnership with Love Loughborough and Charnwood Borough Council. The programme is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
