The Rose Garden area of Queen's Park has been considered problematic for several years and late last year the gate to this area was removed by the Parks Department in an attempt to open the area back up and discourage antisocial behaviour activities (including dog fighting and drug usage). We’d like to seize this opportunity and commission a sculptural open archway or gateway into the Rose Garden as a new piece of park furniture. At the far end of the area the planting has been severely neglected and overrun with bindweed throughout the summer months and this would be the perfect position for an additional site-specific sound sculpture (after a significant clear up!).
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The sculptures would turn an area that attracts anti-social behaviour and drug use into an area which can be enjoyed the community and also attract visitors. The sculptures would transform an area of the park which is need of restoration. They would provide an aesthetically pleasing attraction for local residents and visitors to enjoy when visiting the park and would create an increased feeling of well-being. They would also improve the area’s educational facilities by providing an opportunity for people to learn more about the arts and sciences.
