Event Description

Groundwork London, in partnership with Haringey Council, is launching a new exhibition to showcase photographs of natural art created by visitors to Haringey’s parks and green spaces as part of the Natural Art Competition, which ran over summer 2015.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Friday 27 November at the Hub Café, Lordship Recreation Ground, Tottenham, N17 6NU until Jan 4th 2016.

For enquiries, please contact artcomp@groundwork.org.uk

Groundwork London, in partnership with Haringey Parks Department, has been running a programme of activities and events which aim to encourage people to spend more time in their local parks. Parks are vital community resources, playing an increasingly important role in health and well-being and in cultivating a real sense of community. The Haringey Parks Programme sought creative ways of engaging people of all ages, and attracting new users to the parks.

The Natural Art Competition ran over the summer of 2015, and asked anyone who visited a Haringey Park to create a temporary work of art using only the natural materials which they found there. It was a free activity, a means of celebrating our green spaces, and a real opportunity for local residents to get smaller green spaces on the map. The photographs have been judged by Sarah Jones, Events & Partnerships Manager at Haringey Parks & Leisure Services; Robert Waite, Curator at Bruce Castle Museum; and Julia Clarke, a local artist. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 at a Private View event on Thursday 26 November.

The exhibition is open to the public at Lordship Recreation Ground until January 2016, when it will be moving on to Albert Recreation Ground. For more information about the Haringey Parks Programme, and the Natural Art Exhibition, please contact Judy Hallgarten at artcomp@groundwork.org.uk

This event repeats until January 4th.

I spend a lot of time in Finsbury Park. I am a member of London Heathside a sports club which has a base at the athletics track there. Rather wonderfully Haringey has removed a stand of hideous overbearing conifers between the track and the bowling green which has wonderfully opened up the view and lightened the atmosphered. Sadly two wonderful mature trees beside the track have collapsed under their own weight and have been removed. Sadly also Haringey is deeply involved in the refurbishment of the track, which I can't help but feel has slowed the whole process in an unacceptable way. 

I've also taken part in the current refurbishment of the fountain in Priory Park. I hope that goes well. 

On an admin note - this event spans many days. Ideally, using the copy function it should be split up inot a series of separate events, one per day.
