This Too Will Pass
The branch forum will be followed by a lecture from Tim Scrace. Tim's competition-winning sculpture, This Too Will Pass #TTWP was installed on the high street in Salisbury in May 2021. Originally commissioned by Salisbury’s BID as part of the 800th anniversary of the relocation of the cathedral. The installation is in three parts and encourages people to move between the inter-related parts inviting them to stop and reflect on their past, present and future. Over the two month installation, the sculpture was seen by over 90,000 people, with over 3,000 interactions. In this short talk, Tim will discuss the origins of the work and following the success of the sculpture share his experiences of how it helped bring people and the city together.
Owing to its popularity #TTWP has now relocated to the Old Fire Station where Tim and his practice, Scrace Architects have their offices. Tim hopes that the sculpture’s new temporary home will offer a spark to ignite change and creativity in the city.
