This project began as a series of workshops where Juneau Projects met people in the Spon End community and discussed the kind of project they would like to see in the area. People wanted to share a message about Spon End’s history and its future as being a part of a city that welcomes wildlife.

As part of Wildlife Gathering, Juneau Projects have co-created an art trail with local groups called Time For Nature which combines the clock making heritage in the area and the wildlife connected to the Sherbourne River to make a strong metaphor for making time for nature in the city. 

Suitable for all ages.

ABOUT JUNEAU PROJECTS

Juneau Projects was formed in 2001 by Philip Duckworth and Ben Sadler. Their work is made in collaboration with other people, ranging from one-off workshops that introduce people to a skill or technique to long term projects working with communities to create artworks for their area. Juneau Projects work across a broad range of media including sculpture, animation, print making, Riso printing, performance, music and public art. They are interested in the urge people have to be creative, how that has manifested throughout history and how they can work with groups to create work together.

Juneau Projects have exhibited at venues including Tate Britain (London), PS1 (USA), Frankfurter Kunstverein (Frankfurt), Grizedale Arts (Cumbria), IKON (Birmingham), Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale (Japan), Tatton Park Biennial (UK), Somerset House - Kings Cultural Institute/Up Projects (London), Lismore Castle Arts (Ireland) & Two Chairs, Vermont (USA).
