or by appointment.
The Bower is a collaborative project between Louisa Bailey and Joyce Cronin.
It has charitable status as a Community Interest Company no. 10932813.
We organise exhibitions and events and produce books with artists and writers by Publication Studio London on site. In 2017 we ran a successful crowd funding campaign to transform the derelict toilet block in Brunswick Park, Camberwell for this purpose. In addition to the toilet block, we also took on the old park keepers hut, enabling us to provide a cafe facility for the park. A detailed account can be found in our interview with Laura Hensser for I Heart Women here.
The Bower is a non-profit organisation which does not receive any revenue funding. Any funds raised go directly to the programme. Our artistic programme responds to the context of this unique property and it's locality and is driven by our interest in sociopolitical and feminist practice.
Bower: noun. i. A pleasant shady place under trees. ii. A woman’s private room. iii.
An attractive dwelling or retreat.
