Tenderground Residency

Tenderground is an arts strategy and commissioning programme for the almshouses of Southwark Charities. An innovative, ambitious and world class strategy for the embedding of art and culture into the daily life of the almshouse and its residents.

Southwark Charities are realising a major development of a new almshouse on Blackfriars Road, London, SE1. Through an expansive arts commissioning programme Tenderground explores methods and processes through which art and culture can be embedded and can enhance the daily life of residents, foster the building of community, assist in the processes of change and transition and support the activation of the new building.

The programme is directed by Laura Wilson and Clare Cumberlidge & Co and supported by Southwark Charities.
