Talented pianist, guitarist, composer and Sing City-regular Joy Hardy has won another commissioning opportunity with Kew Gardens and Grow Wild.
Grow Wild selects talented and imaginative young people aged 12 – 25 for their two funding streams to raise awareness about the importance of UK native wildflowers and plants by using visual art, music, poetry, dance or theatre.
Joy was selected for last year’s commission that aimed to help young people engage with the importance of wildflowers in our environment. You can read her blog on this project here.
As winner of Grow Wild’s Get Creative Project 2017 Joy will compose ambient compositions and create sculptures of five wildflowers as part of her multi-sensory Pollinator Project.
“I want to use the skills I have as a composer and artist, and my knowledge of wildflowers to give something back to the environment.” — Joy Hardy
All the Get Creative projects will be presented at a weekend takeover event in Edinburgh at the Summerhall arts centre on 23 – 25 June 2017.
Huge congratulations to Joy from everyone at Brighter Sound for another fantastic application – we’re looking forward to supporting her along the way as her Pollinator Project comes to life.
