On June 23 and 24 2017 we officially opened Rochester Square to the public for the first time in its history. The event, titled Re-Creation, was a chance for those curious about the square to venture in, and an opportunity to share ideas and imagine the square being brought back into future use as a centre for play, rest, and recreation.
Approximately 1000 people joined us over the course of the two days and participated to all the activities and ideas produced by 30 artists: super 8 workshop, playing with clay, lantern making, dance, music, film screening, pizza making, and much more.
A big thank you to all the artists, organisations, and volunteers who contributed and made these days such a success and especially to all those from the community who came to share your hopes, ideas, encouragement, and positive energy!
