Do you live or have lived in Elephant and Castle or Southwark?
Would you like to participate in making a piece of contemporary art, celebrating the multicultural identity of the borough?
We are looking for the languages listed below and are crossing them out as they come in.
Just record your voice while pronouncing the words “Elephant and Castle” in your native language, and tell us what the language is. (for example “L’Elefante e il Castello… Italiano” etc)
Then send us the recording as an audio message or with what’s app to 07726 702575 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
All voices will then be transformed into a tridimensional sculpture, which will be on display in a new redeveloped area near Elephant Road.
Please send us your name and last name if you would like to be credited on the artwork.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Many thanks for your time!
