Taking Root

Are you interested in the potential for bamboo to contribute to a better climate?

Do you want to be part of developing a new living artwork as part of Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games?

We invite you to take part in Taking Root, a collaborative community growing experiment, exploring our relationship with our environment and the potential for bamboo – formerly known as the ‘Bad Boy of British Horticulture’ to tackle the climate crisis and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Join our free workshop on Friday 10 September 2pm – 4pm at Winterbourne House and Gardens at the University of Birmingham.

Taking Root is a project by Ling Tan, an artist, maker and coder who’s work explores citizens’ interaction with the built environment using technology and citizen participation. Her work is exhibited internationally in places such as Centre Pompidou (France), Victoria and Albert Museum (UK) and Barbican (UK).

Taking Root is part of the creative development of Bridge2Bamboo, an ambitious arts, engineering and community project for 2022, produced by Imagineer Productions, in partnership with Winterbourne House and Gardens and University of Birmingham, and supported by Arts Council England.
