Fancy watching birds on Canary Wharf roof?

Roam is this year’s recipient of the CREATE art award, and is the largest participatory art award in the UK. A specially commissioned Roam vehicle will ramble through East London, hosting rural adventures such as fishing, wild swimming, birdwatching, foraging, nature trails, map-making, photography and field recording. It is a paen to a slower pace of life, and to an appreciation of the natural beauty that peeks out from even the most urban east London environment, if only you know where to look.
