Art in the Park
Our Mission is to encourage and motivate all ages to work towards environmental improvements in
inner city London.
Give a positive experience of seeing and being in the natural world.
Work with people of all ages and abilities in visual arts by using open space as an
inspiration and a resource.
Located in the centre of Burgess Park in South East London and run by practising
artists, Art in the Park works with schools, community groups and professional
teams on tailor-made educational art and heritage projects and training days. We
also work with the public in creating permanent public artworks.
Art in the Park’s history of public artwork, courses and creative events have been
made possible by the artists of Art in the Park; Andrea Sinclair, Jane Higginbottom,
Florence Goodhand-Tait and Ange Mukeza.
We run annual Pumpkin Carving and wreath making workshops, and have an open
studio weekend twice a year. We are currently running a four part drawing project
for young people aged 8 and above and their accompanying adults in Elephant
Park called Seasons Watch. We recently ran a series of dementia-friendly walks,
and a series of workshops looking at the Plants of Burgess Park.
