Inspired and excited by all the great work some of my dearest friends are doing at The Grove…a piece of Village Surrey (Transition Initiative) where a group of amazing people are fighting crime, poverty and discrimination with love, creativity and positive presence!
Here is their blur, come and support them!:
The “Encyclopedia House” is a temporary art installation in The Grove in Newton. It is made entirely out of old discarded books. Don Li-Leger, the lead artist, describes the project:
“The motivation for Encyclopedia House is many-fold. It is a vehicle to promote public interest and support for locally-initiated contemporary art projects that aim to address a range of local issues – by promoting curiosity, increasing interest, encouraging thought, and enlivening public discourse. As a public art piece on an unusual site, it is hoped that Encyclopedia House will address topics such as housing and fundamental needs, neighbourhood development, changing sources of knowledge, and recycling.”
The installation will be up for a few weeks and will be the site of a number of gatherings and events. If you have books to donate or would like to would like to host a gathering at the house on a Food Security-related topic, please let us know ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
