Illuminated River, London

The longest public art commission in the world

Incorporating 15 bridges, from Albert Bridge to Tower Bridge, once complete Illuminated River will be the longest public art commission in the world at 2.5 miles in length, along 4.5 nautical miles of the River Thames.

Iceni Engagement provided all pre-application public consultation and stakeholder engagement for the project, delivering 18 drop-in exhibitions and hosting over 60 stakeholder meetings throughout the 7 London Boroughs that the project spans.

Working closely with Leo Villareal (artist) and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands (architects), Iceni Engagement have delivered engagement activities that have involved local walking, cycling, and running groups, as well as targeted events for river users, commuters, residents, local young people and others.

Iceni Engagement are pleased to have been retained post planning approval to continue community engagement up to switch on of phase 1 in spring 2019.
