Nature Neighbours

5th Aug 2024

Juneau Projects (Philip Duckworth and Ben Sadler) are creating a series of public artworks for Knowsley Parks and Green Spaces.

Project Details
Creative Team
  • Artists: Juneau Projects
  • Producer: Caroline Smith

In collaboration with community groups across Knowsley, Juneau Projects will create a series of sculptural artworks capturing the identity of six Knowsley Parks and Green Spaces: Halewood Triangle Park, Court Farm Woods, Hilton Grace, Finch Woods, Goddard Green and Frensham Park.

Over a series of workshops with Knowsley residents, Juneau Projects will explore the history and ecology of each location, which will inspire elements of each artwork. Each will feature small, hand-painted cast metal sculptures, as part of a display with more information about the project and the park it represents. Together, the artworks will form a walking trail, spanning six locations. At each site, there will be a QR code to access further information about the trail, as well as a beautiful map (available in print and as a digital download), featuring illustrations made by residents.

Juneau Projects are fascinated by the natural world and often use it as a starting point for their work - like their recent Heart of Glass project, Heart of the Moss (2023).

Nature Neighbours is produced by Heart of Glass, created in partnership with Knowsley Council.
