Healing Together

Art & Culture

Healing Together

A spectacular fire and light installation will unite the north and south banks of the Thames in the spirit of healing for this fun-filled, family-friendly weekend.

Following the success of the Fire Garden last year, the striking specially-made installation from Walk The Plank is just what’s needed to commemorate loss and celebrate community resilience following the pandemic.

Healing Together will also feature art installations co-created with local communities, performances, and local food and drink, filling Royal Victoria Gardens with uplifting moments and time for reflection.

Events include:

  • After the Storm | Walk the Plank
  • A Square World | Daryl Beeton
  • Bee-ology | Bumble Movement Arts
  • Do What Yah Mamma Told Yah! | Just More Productions
  • Frock | Stopgap Dance Company
  • From Greenwich with Love Greenwich Dance
  • Fire Garden | Walk the Plank
  • Ida Barr Christopher Green
  • Recovery Poems | Emergency Exit Arts
  • Robot Selfie Kaleider
  • The Rascally Diner | LAStheatre
  • The Hidden Music of Trees | Jason Singh
  • The Other Side | Ascension Dance
  • Urban Astronaut | Highly Sprung
  • What Happened to You? | Nikki Charlesworth

Highlights include:

Get closer to nature as you explore the park’s green spaces and listen out for a sound installation created by Jason Singh among the plants.

We’ve spent so long apart recently that it’s time to come together for some community cohesion and reinvigoration.

All events and activities will adhere to the Government’s COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. Regular updates are also provided to organisers to ensure all events and activities are adhering to the most recent Government Coronavirus guidance and restrictions
