May – July 2010
Elephant Parade London is a fantastically innovative fundraising and public awareness campaign for the endangered Asian elephant. It shines a multi-coloured spotlight on the urgent crisis facing this majestic animal and is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face, bringing a uniquely fun and highly creative twist to UK conservation efforts.
Billed as the capitals largest public art exhibition, Elephant Parade will embrace all that is excellent about London and will highlight every green initiative of the capital’s top businesses. Decorated by a different artist or celebrity, the brightly painted elephants will help to create a bright new atmosphere in London and beautify each city park, street corner and building they grace. The event has already won the backing of Boris Johnson and the Greater London Authority, prominent artists and well known personalities such as The Duchess of York, Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley and Michael Palin.
Launching in central London locations in summer 2010 the event has already secured the support of prominent arts organisations, artists, conservationists, dignitaries, corporate organisations and celebrities. Now we are offering companies and organisations; restaurateurs, hoteliers, retailers, talented artists, designers, celebrities and creative individuals and individuals from all walks of life the opportunity to become part of Elephant Parade 2010.
