49 SCULPTURES... 4 LOCATIONS... ENDLESS GRATITUDE

Gratitude’ – is a spectacular outdoor public art installation, which will take place throughout the UK later this year recognising the tremendous efforts of ALL KEY WORKERS  during the pandemic.

The image of key workers standing together, but apart, is one of the abiding images of our times – each worker socially distancing and standing apart, while at the same time showing a unique coming together.
 
‘Gratitude' will commemorate and celebrate the stories of this extraordinary moment in time and will give members of the public an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences of the global COVID pandemic.
 
The arts programme is overseen by Dame Zandra Rhodes and will feature 4 x 2 week events starting in Birmingham in August before travelling to Manchester, Edinburgh and London. In October, the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money for NHS Charities Together.

 

Confirmed partners include: Ocado, Bupa, Securitas, Premier Inn, 22 Bishopsgate and HSBC.

We have some availability for Sculpture Sponsors, Location Sponsors and Venue Partners as well as the Finale Auction Partner.
