UP Projects was invited to work with Southwark Council's Parks department and Culture department to develop and write an art strategy that would support the Revitalisation of Burgess Park.
In March 2009 Burgess Park won £2 million from the Mayor of London. This received match funding of a further £4 million from the Aylesbury New Deal for Communities. In November 2009, LDA Design was awarded the contract to undertake the major renovation project and UP Projects' Art Strategy was adopted to support the Revitalisation scheme with a commitment to making Burgess Park a destination for quality art with a broad cultural offer.
