Take part in creative workshops inspired by Siân Davey's The Garden

Take part in one of two different creative workshops – poetry and flower sculpture – that aim to bring people together, connect and be inspired by Siân Davey's The Garden.

Inside Out is a free and inclusive summer festival, produced by Westminster City Council and partners, that brings our city’s world-renowned arts, entertainment and culture into the streets and open spaces of Westminster for all to enjoy.

About The Garden:

Starting in 2020, British photographer Siân Davey transformed her abandoned garden over three summers into a vibrant space, filled with wildflowers, birdsong and people.

Together with her son, Luke, Davey cultivated a space rooted in love. They researched native flowers and encouraged biodiversity, sourcing seeds and plants locally.

When the flowers bloomed, they called in the community. Everyone had a place in The Garden; the mothers and daughters, the lonely, the marginalised, lovers, the traumatised and heartbroken and those that had concealed a lifetime of shame. The space became an expression of yearning, defiance, joy and interconnectedness.

Discover works from Siân Davey’s The Garden in a free outdoor exhibition in the Soho Photography Quarter just outside the Gallery.
