Building Begins for Cardboard Southwark!

May 2014

Twelve Southwark Primary Schools build Southwark out of cardboard led by Artist Reuben Powell. 
May saw the beginning of the education project; Building A City - Cardboard Southwark.
Each class will get the chance to visit Hotel Elephant twice to take part in this collaborative art project initiated by the Southwark Schools Collaborative.  

After researching the local landscape around their school, the children will start by working in groups to create different area's out of cardboard. These range from local parks, flyovers, pubs, schools and housing estates. 
On their second visit the children will get the chance to paint their creations, finishing off their area of Southwark. 

This project will culminate in an exhibition of all the work created in the project. A cardboard city which you can walk through. 

A big thank you to Loop Recycling who have kindly supported the project by suppling all the cardboard.
