Sculpture in the City

Sculpture in the City offers exciting opportunities for young people to engage with the City of London and public art through its extensive education outreach programme created and delivered by Urban Learners.

Sculpture in the City (SITC) is an annual urban sculpture park, set amongst the historic and architectural landmarks of the City’s insurance district. Every summer, the City of London, in partnership with local businesses, unveil new artworks by internationally acclaimed and emerging artists activating public spaces and enriching the cultural offer of the area.

Every summer term, 200 students (aged 10-14 years old) from 9 local state schools benefit from participating in SITC’s exploratory and creative learning activities that support the Art and Design National Curriculum.

Over a series of 30+ workshops, the students discover new places in the City, learn about the value of public art, architecture and city spaces, and creatively respond to these through observational and experimental activities and using bespoke tool-kits. Volunteers from the SITC partner companies, architects and artists help support the students during the programme.
