Are you a local artist with a passion for Waterloo?

WeAreWaterloo and LOMA (1-5 Lower Marsh) invite you to be a part of an exciting project that will bring even more colour and vibrancy to the Lower Marsh landscape. Here’s your chance to leave your mark on one of London’s most dynamic neighborhoods!

As part of our Placemaking Strategy (which you can learn more about here), WeAreWaterloo aims to deliver a variety of public art projects that solidify our BID’s quirky character whilst also having a big impact on identity and wayfinding.

LOMA is a new development of unique and inspiring offices set to begin construction very soon at 1-5 Lower Marsh, and they have called upon WaW to find a local artist to take over a portion of pavement-level hoarding while the build takes place.

We encourage all local artists to embrace their creativity and submit their ideas while development takes place. We anticipate that the artwork will be up and in place within the next 4-6 weeks with the removal of the artwork scheduled for Q2 2025.
