• Finsbury Park 150 Photographic Exhibition

20 July 2019 - 10:00 to 28 July 2019 - 17:00

This Summer we celebrate the extraordinary 150-year history of one of London’s best-loved “People’s Parks” with an outdoor exhibition of large-format photographs in the Park for visitors to explore. The exhibition shows selected moments from Finsbury Park’s radical past, showcasing previously unseen images from local archives and the Museum of London collection. This event is part of the London-wide National Park City Festival.

• Forest bathing

22 July 2019 - 13:00 to 16:00

Feeling connected to nature has been shown to be beneficial to well-being and pro-environmental behaviour. Come on this three-hour workshop to:

– discover new practices for developing a deep nature connection
– play games that will use all your senses to increase your awareness
– find out how direct experience, rather than knowledge, will provoke your curiosity

• The Time Portals Exhibition

27 July 2019 - 11:00 to 28 July 2019 - 17:00

Octavia E Butler had a vision of time as circular, giving meaning to acts of courage and persistence. In the face of social and environmental injustice, setbacks are guaranteed, no gains are made or held without struggle, but societal woes will pass and our time will come again. In this sense, history offers solace, inspiration, and perhaps even a prediction of what to prepare for.

The Time Portals exhibition, at Furtherfield Gallery and online spaces, celebrates the 150th anniversary of Finsbury Park. As one of London’s first ‘People’s Parks’, designed for free movement and thought, it is the perfect location to create a mass investigation of radical pasts and futures, circling back to the start as we move forwards.  

Each artwork invites audience participation - either in its creation or in the development of a parallel ‘people’s’ work - turning every idea into a portal to countless more imaginings of past and future urban green spaces and beyond. 

The exhibition runs from 9 May to 20 October 2019, open Saturdays and Sundays 11-5 or by appointment.
