AIP has received an Emergency Response Grant from the Arts Council England to allow us to adapt our outdoor nature-based workshops for older and young people to the lockdown situation. These will enable us to celebrate the wonderful resource that London Parks provide us in this time of need through virtual and socially distant workshops and also with the provision of resource packs for people who can’t access these. We will be consulting with groups and individuals we have worked with to create the best possible provision.

If you would like to be consulted and/or kept informed about this “Making Art Outdoors” project please contact us on studio.artinthepark@gmail.

Outdoor Southwark was a new partnership project between Art in the Park and the Alzheimer’s Society giving people with dementia and their carers new opportunities to experience Southwark’s parks and outdoor spaces in a series of dementia-friendly walks. These were informed by local experts to cover a diverse range of topics such as wildlife and local history. The project took place from September 2018 – December 2020.
