Public Art Strategy
As part of the Harrow Road Place Plan, Westminster City Council will be commissioning public artworks in the Harrow Road Area around the themes of local heritage and cultural identity, carnival and the Grand Union Canal.
The Public Art Strategy has been funded by the Council in response to engagement feedback received over the past two years that sets out the clear aspiration for public art to be delivered across that area which can help contribute to a stronger sense of local identity, define the character of places and reference the rich social and cultural heritage of the Harrow Road area.
The Public Art Panel are advising on the process to ensure there is local ownership over future Public Art investment. The Panel is made up of key local arts and cultural organisations including Paddington Arts, Grand Junction, Flamboyan and Abundance Arts. As well as representatives from the local neighbourhood forums and community councils and a local Ward Councillor.
The 3 public art sites have been chosen by the Public Art Panel are located within the wider Good Growth Funded public realm sites:
1. Harrow Road Open Space
2. Maida Hill Market
3. Westbourne Green Open Space
Westminster City Council will be calling for high quality artists that have an interest in working in the Harrow Road area in late 2023.
