Shout it from the rooftop!
47/49 are seeking sculptors to exhibit on our rooftop to an estimated 2 million people over a month.
Our roof overlooks the Eastbound train lines from London Bridge, and in 2014 we embarked upon a mission to showcase ambitious and polemical public sculptures from this spot. In May we hosted a pilot project, which aimed to draw attention to the vast quantities of plastic pollution in our oceans and food chains. Through social media networks we reached 379,250 people with our hashtag #PlasticLunch and alongside this worked with 160 children from local schools and pupil referral units in a series of art workshops. We want to deliver another rooftop project in Autumn 2014.
We can also support in the delivery of this project, helping to seek funding, promote the piece and manage the project. The audience will be going past on a train, so the sculpture needs to be large and bold to attract passing commuters and rail passengers. As an organisation we have a particular interest in work which has a political or social resonance and a measurable impact. If you’re interested in submitting an idea for this project please contact Rosie on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting.
