The City of London public realm offers exciting possibilities to inhabit, animate and engage. The schools and community outreach education programme invites local schools to explore the public realm spaces which Sculpture in the City inhabits through a series of dynamic workshops. This extensive educational programme is a significant element to the overall project.
