Joe Orton Statue
Joe Orton Statue joined CrowdFund Leicester1 month ago

'The idea that in Orton Square there should be a statue, a memorial to Joe Orton, is terrific' (Sir Ian McKellen) Pledge now to help commemorate one of Britain's most important and influential writers. We will commission a statue of Joe Orton from a leading sculptor. We will run community engagement events in Leicester to involve the public in the design of the statue, invite artists to submit a design, shortlist the best three, then commission the chosen artist to make a statue of Joe Orton for Orton Square, outside Curve theatre. The statue will reflect Orton's cheeky iconoclasm. Your pledge will help to ensure that the extraordinary life, work and legacy of this working class, gay writer are permanently commemorated in the city of his birth. Any funds raised beyond our 100K target will be used to run Joe Orton-related creative writing /arts events in Leicester. This appeal is endorsed by Sir Ian McKellen, Stephen Fry and Sheila Hancock, amongst others.
