Prior to the arrival of The Pollinarium (a family friendly, audio-visual installation commissioned by York Mediale, York Museums Trust and Invisible Dust) there will be a variety of family friendly events, workshops and activities held in the Artists Garden.

As part of these events, structures will be built containing a variety of plants, to be looked after by members of the local community during August. These structures will form the entrance and walkway of The Pollinarium when it arrives in late September.

Open to all ages. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
