A Green March!

15/05/2018

 

This coming June we are very fortunate to have artist Lucia Monge participate in a School Residency program with Whitechapel Gallery and collaborate with students at Willow Brook Primary School to develop a Plantón Móvil and plant native species at a local parkland near the school.

“Plantón” is the word in Spanish for a sapling. It is also the word for a sit-in. This project takes on both: the green to be planted and the peaceful protest. People of all ages are invited to lend their mobility to a group of trees and plants so they can walk down the streets, like a small forest peacefully reclaiming its place and respect. At the end of the walk, the trees and plants contribute to a new or existing public park.

The march will begin at Willow Brook Primary School, Leyton on Saturday 23rd June 2018.
