The Alton Estate, Roehampton, London
David Vassie devised a project where 3,000 home kits were delivered personally to residents, community groups and local schools of The Alton Estate in The London Borough of Wandsworth, London.
The kits contained all the materials needed to produce the head of a flower and these were collected over a three month period.
The flower heads were then attached to 6ft high stems and sited en-masse on the locally known ‘Bull Green’ in August 2011.
This has been the most successful project in the history of The Alton Estate; historically it has been a notoriously difficult area to engage.
Funded by Arts Council England, Wandsworth Arts and Wandsworth Cultural Wealth.
