The Hidden City Project

Commissioned by the City of London Corporation for Culture Mile 

CMF was one of twenty organisations selected to be portrayed in the Culture Mile’s Hidden City Project, alongside key Culture Mile partners Barbican, LSO, Museum of London, GSMD and the City of London Corporation itself. Culture Mile is the City of London’s vibrant cultural quarter stretching from Farringdon to Moorgate and including CMF’s home in Smithfield. Photographer Emile Holba was commissioned to make a photographic narrative to demonstrate the diverse creativity to be found here, which is planned for an outdoor exhibition. Culture Mile have currently taken this exhibition online and now you can see all these stunning photos from your home here.

This week Culture Mile are highlighting CMF to widen understanding of what we do as an organisation. It features Clare and Latana surrounded by the musical instruments of our artists’ trade, and in the magnificent Great Hall at St Bartholomew’s Hospital – a great example of the City’s heritage and one with which CMF works closely.
