Which Woolwich Stories Culture Trail
As the result of an open call, EEA commissioned Woolwich artists to create a number of installations that have been displayed in the spaces around Woolwich High Street and the Heritage Action Zone. With the support of Historic England and the Royal Borough of Greenwich, these commissions form a curated trail that celebrates the spirit of Woolwich, its diversity and iconic landmarks. Local people will act as tour guides, showing people the culture of Woolwich. They will direct people around the trail, which showcases areas of local interest, the artworks and the businesses within the Woolwich area.
