Broad Meadow

14/09/2021

From July to September 2021, Broad Street was transformed into 'Broad Meadow', a beautiful community space and haven for wildlife. The project, which was a collaboration between LDA Design, Oxford City Council and ODS, has turned this busy city centre route into a verdant pedestrianised outdoor space with new seating areas, wildflower meadows, trees, small lawns, and a floral street mural that brought it all together! The meadow's planters and wooden seating was made from recycled materials including pallets that were used to transport vaccines and PPE.

Fusion Arts brought artist Bryony Benge-Abbott on board to create the vibrant flower-inspired street mural, which injected further colour and liveliness into the space. With the added assistance of two Fusion staff, three local artists, and several personnel from other organisations, the whole street painting was completed over the course of three very productive days!

You can find more information as well as lots of images and videos of the project and its process on Bryony's website.
