Culture Mile under consultation at Smithfield


Artists haven’t wasted any time painting a picture of what the City’s new Culture Mile could look like, installing a colourful origami-inspired pop-up in Smithfield Rotunda.

The ‘Peace’ pavilion by artists Morag Myerscough and Luke Morgan is part of a push for public feedback on the 10-year plan to transform the area between Farringdon and Moorgate into an arts hub.

The City Corporation is hoping a week of arts activities including opera performances, poetry readings and origami making will get residents and workers thinking about what they want from the new Culture Mile before creative agency Fluid drafts a ‘look and feel’ strategy later this year.

‘Joy and Peace’ week is on from 21 to 25 August.
