'Spontaneous Communities' is an ambitious engagement programme for Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
Five community groups will collaborate through the year with regional artists to research ideas, concerns and questions triggered by the Spontaneous City sculptures at NNF11, then they'll create new work for NNF12. Created by artists London Fieldworks and sited at Eaton Park, Waterloo Park and Cow Tower in Norwich, the sculptures draw on the ecology and biodiversity of their settings.

The city that grew into a tree
Following on from our previous session, the tower we had constructed started to take on tree-like qualities. We used branches and willow sticks to transform the skyscraper into something altogether more earthy. It being the season to be jolly and all that, we decorated our tree with lights, sparkly hand prints, baubles and the trunk part had chocolate coins hidden in it too! We sang to our tree and each other, a celebration of what we have achieved together and a nice way to round things off till next time we meet in January.
