This temporary public art project, which is part of the Mayor of London’s Let’s Do London domestic tourism campaign and supported by Bloomberg, will unleash colour onto pedestrian crossings on Tottenham Court Road in Camden and in the City of London in a spectacular public artwork.
'Bring London Together' will make art and design accessible, to Londoners and visitors, while championing the creative sector which has been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. The project will also engage with the local community, inviting them to participate in the project. Beginning on 20 September, across two days of London Design Festival, volunteers will be invited to paint the Queen Street pedestrian area and help bring the artwork to life. On Tottenham Court Road, a variety of events will be hosted over the coming months, in addition to digital offers, to support the local community and visitors to engage with and enjoy the artwork. Over the last 18 months, art and design students have had their education significantly disrupted by the pandemic, with limited access to studios, exhibitions to physically showcase their work and networking events to build vital professional relationships.
