CREATE 2011: ‘Folly for a Flyover’ launch
The launch of ‘Folly for a Flyover’ - a project built with local, reclaimed and donated materials - is one of the highlights of this year's CREATE festival
Kicking off this year’s CREATE festival – a month-long multi-disciplinary arts festival in East London – is the launch of the ‘Folly for a Flyover’ project located under the A12 between eastbound and westbound traffic in Hackney Wick. The Folly was built by a group of architects, art students and volunteers with entirely local, reclaimed and donated materials.
The Folly venue will host events throughout the festival, including screenings, a café, performances and boat trips on the surrounding waterways. After the event closes, the Folly will be dismantled and the materials passed on locally for use elsewhere.
There is no parking at the Folly, and the site can only be accessed by foot or bicycle along the canal towpath. The footpath can be accessed from the Eastway where it crosses the Lea Valley Canal.
When: Thursday, 23rd June, 7pm
Where: Under the A12 in Hackney Wick, by Lea Valley Canal, London
