Artist Talk – Carole Wright (Blak Outside), with Harun Morrison

Tuesday 26 October 2021

Join us at the White House for a special artist talk by Carole Wright (Blak Outside), hosted by Harun Morrison (They Are Here).


As part of LBBD’s New Town Culture programme, Carole worked with local families through Spring & Summer of 2021, to grow, care for the White House garden, and cook together. Working with soil and plant life, together they explored the histories of plants, nature and the built environment, and who has access to experiences outdoors.

As the garden curls inward for Autumn, conserving its energy for the coming Spring, Carole opens up to talk about how to be safely and proudly Blak Outside.

Carole is joined by Harun Morrison (They Are Here), who led the transformation of the White House garden in 2017.

Families are very welcome to join us for this artist talk, followed by snacks and drinks.
