CAS Consultancy has been working with artist Kenny Hunter, Lendlease and Southwark Council to realise a new memorial for the borough’s latest public space, Walworth Square. Join us on Tuesday 27 November 2018 from 11am for a full programme of speeches and readings followed by a reception at Crossway United Reformed Church, SE1.
Hunter’s bronze will be installed in the days leading up to the event and will be unveiled on the morning of 27 November 2018.
The Southwark Memorial project began two years ago, with artist Albert Potrony and curator Vivienne Reiss commissioned to develop an articulation of local people’s interests in commemoration and the role of the memorial in society today. A series of workshops and events with community groups was instigated by Potrony and fed into the ambitions for the memorial. Kenny Hunter was appointed as the memorial artist by a steering group comprising the Leader of the Council, Imperial War Museum curators, the Royal Society of Arts and an independent curator.
