Public art community workshops

Aldgate and Portsoken area

Supported by The Aldgate BID, the City of London Corporation Cultural Services team are working with Sculpture in the City on an exciting new public art project for Aldgate Square.

We are looking for members of the Aldgate and Portsoken community to take part in a number of workshops as part of the development of 2 new pieces of sculpture that will be going into Aldgate Square in 2022 and 2023. 5 artists have 5 different ideas for the sculptures, and they want to learn more about the communities in this area to help develop these ideas.
