Garden Museum News: Culture Under the Stars
Culture Under the Stars
This day-length symposium in partnership with the European Commission brings together speakers from six great European cities to share how parks, pleasure gardens and piazzas have been places of cultural creativity from the Renaissance until today.
Speakers will explore the ‘outdoors cultures’ of Europe: from the princely gardens of Rome, to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens of 18th Century London, through to Córdoba’s new festival of floral design, discover how art, music and drama have flourished side by side in the open air with politics, leisure and commerce.
