Have you seen them? Do you know who they are or where they have come from?
From across south Southwark ‘They’ have come together at Dulwich Library for this unusual and intriguing installation.
Experience the stories behind the mystery of the moving scarecrows, discover who they represent, and listen to eye witness accounts. For a limited time only we reveal who made them, who gave them life and you can see with your own eyes their remarkable journey.
‘They are coming…’ is the culmination of a project spanning many months and involving approximately 400 local residents, makers, writers, artists, movers, historians, community groups, retirement homes, colleges, school children, teachers and governors.
Thank you to everyone involved, including the makers and the movers from Whippersnappers, Dulwich Library adult craft group, Southwark Woodcraft Folk, St. Johns’ and St. Clements Primary School, Dulwich Wood Nursery School, Stepping Stones, Dulwich Family Group and Alleyn’s Junior School.
This project has been created by Sometime Soon Arts.
