Brief Description

Artists and creative practitioners with an interest in working in the public realm are invited to propose ideas to transform sites nominated by the residents of Waltham Forest as part of Making Places. Wards throughout the borough have a nominated site, proposed by local residents. The sites include small green spaces, parks, building exteriors and underpasses and other public spaces that have the potential to be transformed for the benefit of everyone. The Open Call, managed in partnership with Create London is for artists, architects, designers, landscape gardeners, collectives and creative practitioners from anywhere in the UK to propose an idea for one or more of the nominated sites with a long-term physical installation or intervention. Ideas might include: lighting installations, growing spaces, sculptures, play equipment, outdoor furniture or other interventions which will revitalise and improve the site and surrounding area.
