Futurecity have been appointed to to curate and manage a major public art programme for Berewood, a 516-acre residential development by Grainger PLC within the West of Waterlooville area of South Hampshire.  Futurecity ran a competition for artists to propose a public art project that brought together artwork in the public realm with community engagement. Through this process Winchester City Council, Havant Borough Council and Grainger PLC have selected London-based art, landscape and architecture practice, Wayward. Wayward’s proposal, Grow, Grow, Grow Your Boat is a living sculpture of growing oaks and steel that explores the maritime history of the ancient woodland of the Forest of Bere that surrounds and sits within Berewood.

"[This commission] presents a remarkable opportunity to create a living sculpture, a public space and destination that will truly grow with the new community."
