About With Us All
Artist Sean Roy Parker has been collaborating with the community at St Raph’s Edible Garden on With Us All.
Roy has created a design for a bright and welcoming glasshouse made of reclaimed windows and waste wood. It will be filled with second-hand tools and prompts for new ways to connect with and enjoy the natural world.
Over the summer we offered workshops to explore the garden through writing and foraging for healing herbs.
During October we will be busy with the construction of the glasshouse, including installing it on site. We’re also holding workshops where local people can be part of getting it ready for the big launch!
About Metroland’s Community Commissions
In our Community Commissions, we are exploring how artists can work with groups to address an important desire in their daily lives. The projects are community-led, which means the communities are in the driving seat. They write the brief for the artist and select who they want to work with.
The community at St. Raph’s set a brief for artists and then selected Sean Roy Parker as the winning proposal.
This celebration will mark the end of the final Community Commission from the 2022 Brent Biennial.
It is the culmination of a year-long process of community involvement and creative work and we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved along the way.
