Director of Growth, Bill Price, is collaborating with creative minds to enhance our public spaces. By communicating with artists and sculptors, and connecting with them on a deeper level, Bill believes we can gain a greater insight into the creative process and understand the outcomes they want to achieve. To mark the launch of the Artist’s Garden on Temple Station Roof Terrace in London, Bill shares how art can transform blank canvases into beautiful environments that enrich our towns and cities.
