Sanctuary: Green Spaces and Social Value
Thu 4 May 2017, 16:30 – 19:00 BST
Convened by Professor Eileen Hogan of the University of the Arts, London, to coincide with her residency exhibition, 'Artist-not-in-Residence', at the Garden Museum.
Eileen Hogan created a ‘virtual Garden Museum’ by asking a cross-section of people to nominate a London green space that is important to them and to describe why.
The symposium will feature a panel of experts who will respond to this artistic mapping of London's green spaces and what it can tell us about the value of urban green infrastructure to issues such as mental health and biodiversity to the simple daily pleasure of millions.
The symposium will be introduced by Christopher Woodward, Director of the Garden Museum and will end with a panel discussion chaired by Nigel Carrington, Vice-Chancellor: University of the Arts London and will be followed by a Private View of the exhibition.
