Hearts for the Arts Awards

Happy Street Festival & Thessaly Road Bridge

Wandsworth London Borough Council


Best Arts Project - Community Cohesion 2020

Happy Street Festival & Thessaly Road Bridge

What our judges said:


This project made me realise what drab surroundings we put up with. And the potential good design has to brighten our liminal and often forgotten spaces. The council’s willingness to take the risk, the weighty talent of Ilori, and the push for this project from the community all came together at the right time. On Ilori, his work has that rarest combination; it’s exceptional but not exclusive. Happy Street made me smile.


A fantastic outdoor festival, which in real partnership has really helped to improve the environment for the people of Nine Elms.
