As well as being a place to socialise and relax, Gaia’s Garden will host free workshops, talks and performances throughout summer focusing on climate change and sustainability.
The project is spearheaded by Play Nice, the winners of our inaugural Fusion Prize, in partnership with @Dominvs Group who provided the space. The garden was conceptualised by five young female creatives from across fashion, graphic design, movement, music, and photography, who took part in Play Nice’s prize winning cultural incubator programme The Pattern. Mentored by Noga-Levy Rapoport, an ambassador for the UK Student Climate Network, the group’s vision is to present sustainability through a more inclusive and feminist lens.
Gaia’s Garden forms part of the City Lord Mayor’s Culture and Commerce Taskforce’s Enhancing the City initiative, which seeks to fill repurposed commercial spaces across the City with curated creative activity in order to animate the area and drive footfall.
