Scarecrows?


Recommended Posts

I met the guy who was making one outside the library yesterday - it's a really interesting project - part of dulwich festival and each scarecrow is based on a dulwich historical person, Edward Alleyn, Enid Blyton, even a hermit who used to live in Dulwich woods! They are made from living willow so will grow one day - apparently this Saturday all the scarecrows will be gathered at the library to be viewed all together before their final planting. It's a lovely project for the community and schools involved - though sadly the guy said one has already been vandalised and one stolen which is crazy and will ruin enjoyment for local residents who want to look and appreciate them!

Here we go again. Middle class self congratulations. It's basically what we called as kids a 'Guy Fawkes' that you'd use to beg for cash and then burn on a bonfire November 5th, but oh now, apparently in some contemporary modern

twist it's now a scarecrow with cultural references to Dulwich. Unbelievable. Giant imaginary clap for middle class cultural originality.
