The Cody Dock ‘Lighting Up The Lea’ Arts Commission 2024

We are delighted to announce a new arts commission: The Cody Dock ‘Lighting Up The Lea’ Arts Commission made possible by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts. The new commission is an open invitation for artists to respond to the findings of the Cody Dock Tidal Lea River Ecology Report and aims to provide artists with a unique opportunity to reach local audiences and increase engagement with our natural environment in Newham.

The fund, of up to £7,500, will support a new artist in residency opportunity culminating in the production of a new site-specific work that will go on display throughout March 2024 and April 2024. The call for submissions will run until Friday 29th September 2023.
