Croydon Stands Tall Launch
It’s time to Stand Up, Stand Out, and Stand Tall as we launch Croydon Stands Tall.
Brought to you by Wild in Art and Croydon BID, supported by Croydon London Borough of Culture and the Greater London Authority, Croydon Stands Tall will take everyone on a journey from the moment it is launched, making art accessible for all, promoting health and happiness as we celebrate our people and culture.
We invite you to the launch of the first of the 14 major showcase events for Croydon, London Borough of Culture 2023. Join us as we look to stand tall together and support our chosen charity partner Crisis, in launching Croydon Stands Tall:
- WHEN: Tuesday, 11th October 2022
- WHERE: LSBU, 3 Wellesley Road, Croydon, CR0 2AG
- TIME: 6.00pm – 8.00pm
- ENTRY: Invitation only for you and up to 3 guests
Working with Wild in Art, we will create a mass participation public arts event and trail of over 30 individually designed giant giraffe sculptures that will go live in September 2023 for all those that live, work and visit our incredible borough.
At its heart is the need for everyone connected to Croydon Stands Tall to have fun, feel inspired and proud of our community as we stand tall, proud and together.
Croydon Stands Tall aims to raise over £100,000 for those who are homeless or facing homelessness in Croydon with our partner Crisis.
Join us as we launch Croydon Stands Tall and reveal the first of the 8ft giraffe designs, created by Rich Simmons, our very own internationally acclaimed artist. Discover why a giraffe, our collective journey over the next 12 months and how we will inspire all.
