Old Oak and Park Royal Great Place Scheme

Old Oak and Park Royal Great Place SchemeAn ambitious and community-focused three-year programme which will uncover, connect and showcase the culture, creativity and heritage of Park Royal and help shape the future of Old Oak, one of the UK’s largest regeneration projects.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from artists to engage with communities working, living and/or socialising in the area to deliver the 2019 Annual Art Commission which responds to the heritage of Old Oak and Park Royal in London. Find out more here.

The project can take any form and we are open to ideas which encourage us to think about the heritage of Park Royal in new ways.

Create London has been appointed as the lead creative partner and is working closely with the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) to develop and deliver a three-year programme of activities, events and projects co-created with local people, businesses and organisations to ensure that the art, culture and heritage of the area is celebrated.

Initial proposals for the programme include annual arts commissions, a schools engagement programme , community-led research and a small grants programme.

This activity and focus will help celebrate the successes of the London’s largest industrial area and will ensure local residents and businesses play an authentic role in shaping the future regeneration. As the UK’s most productive  and vibrant industrial park, we are looking forward to working with the local communities in and around Park Royal, and Old Oak, to deliver early, culture-led, regeneration projects.

The Great Place Scheme is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund
