Public art organisation, UP Projects are working closely with Barnet Council to curate a programme of artist-led activities to celebrate 100 years of Station Road in Edgware, North London. The programme, that consists of a series of events and a new public artwork, will take place throughout 2023, activating public spaces and places along Station Road and beyond. Which includes a Performance for Edgware by Emma Smith and Care and Magic at Edgware Library by Ruth Beale.
The programme is developed in close collaboration with a host of key partners and local stakeholders including Barnet Council, the London Festival of Architecture, the emerging Business Improvement District, Middlesex University, Ballymore, Transport for London as well as local Edgware-based community groups, businesses and youth centres.
