Innocence and Experience at WAC Gallery

William Blake is one of England's few world-renowned artists and poets whose life and works have been undervalued and under celebrated. The William Blake Heritage Project aims to introduce him and his work to a wider audience.

The project's first event is an exhibition of large scale mosaic replications of William Blake's most famous artwork.

The work has been created by Southbank Mosiacs and fulfils William Blake's dream to see his work reproduced in large scale. In November 2008 the mosaics will form part of a large scale visual art and sound installation planned for Centaur Street which runs into Hercules Road where Blake lived from 1790 to 1800. When the mosaics are installed they will attract an estimated 30,000 visitors annually.

The William Blake Heritage Project is being supported by a 195,500 grant from Heritage Lottery Fund. The other project partners are Futures Theatre Company and Southbank Sinfonia who will use theatre and music respectively to introduce William Blake and his work to a larger audience.
