Walking The Line is a great way for families and friends to spend time together in the open air and experience culture and local heritage for free.

The artworks act as an impetus to get people visiting this under-utilised stretch of East London’s waterways and in doing so enable them to (re)discover the fascinating stories and wildlife on their doorsteps, as well as being inspired by the art. Viewing artworks together is a great way to open up conversations across the generations; from pre-schoolers to grandparents, everyone will have an opinion on what they see and what it means to them. For those wishing to delve deeper, the works on The Line raise fascinating questions about time, the human body and place and provoke debate about the environment, our society and identity.

The chance to view works outside of a gallery brings art within reach of all and helps challenge perceptions of who art is for.
