In a beautiful display of public art and celebration, Godiva was welcomed to Waltham Forest and the Town Hall on Sunday to a creative and colourfully warm welcome.
Local artists and arts organisations, lead by Studio 3 Arts, were commissioned to lead the local welcome and transformation of the Town Hall.
Godiva Awakes is part of Artists taking the lead, a series of 12 public art commissions across the UK to celebrate the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, funded by Arts Council England. The piece is made by mechanics, artists, theatre makers, puppeteers and engineers originally from Coventry to the highest standards of contemporary craftsmanship.
Just as it’s proving with the current 2012 Olympics Games, it’s the volunteers that really made this event happen.
