The People’s Tower - Call for workshop participants

15 July - 19 July
Organized by: City of London Corporation
Venue: , TBC
Flat 404, Prince Court, 5 Nelson Street

The People’s Tower will be a giant structure made entirely from cardboard boxes, inspired by the medieval Guildhall. Assembled in Guildhall Yard on Saturday 20 July without cranes or machines, and with only human strength and energy, this incredible temporary structure will then be pulled down in a communal and celebratory demolition the following day.


The artist, Olivier Grossetête, can only create this amazing structure with your help. If you’re interested in taking part in the workshops, which will run from 15 - 19 July (times and location to be confirmed), please email Alice Spalding alice.spalding@cityoflondon.gov.uk.


All participants welcome. If you have any special needs or requirements, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate them.
