From 2016-2023, The Bower brought life to two formally derelict buildings in Brunswick Park, South London, opening to the public in 2018 with a programme of exhibitions, events, publications and a vibrant community cafe.
We created a critically engaged space within a community environment, embedding contemporary art and publishing in the cultural and daily life of Brunswick Park where local people could actively engage with our work as participants, audiences and collaborators.
In 2019 we were recipients of a Civic Award from Southwark Council and the Mayor of Southwark for our contribution to art, culture and the community in Brunswick Park, Camberwell.
We continue to work collaboratively in new nomadic ways outside of the context of Brunswick Park, maintaining our ethos and commitment to principles of collaboration, support and care, rooted in socio-political and intersectional feminist practice.
