The #Artskickers Stage at Dalston Garden with Morag Myerscough

Winners of the #Artskickers People’s Choice Award 2017, Dalston Curve Garden is a uniquely vibrant community hub, treasured by the people of Hackney. Last year 160,000 people visited the Garden, which plays host to over 200 events, 12 months a year.

With over 100 live music events staged there in 2017 alone, its stage works hard! They deserve a new one and #Artskickers are collaborating with renowned designer Morag Myerscough and the Garden team to to design and build a stage in time for The #Artskickers Awards on September 13. It will remain in the Garden for community use long after the Awards are over. WOOHOO!

Together with creative partner Luke Morgan, #Artskicker extraordinaire Morag has created amazing, joyful spaces from Battersea to Brighton, Venice to South Africa and far beyond. Now she’s designing the new stage for this beloved community space. How FAB is that?!

Morag’s design will be informed by the thoughts and feelings of people who visit, use and love the Garden. On Wednesday, July 25, everyone’s invited to participate in one of 3 pattern workshops, where you’ll work with Morag to create patterns that will be incorporated in to the design. This is a unique opportunity to get a #KickUpTheArts from one of the UK’s leading creatives and to help create a stage that this garden deserves.
