White Butterflies

Part of Alchemy

Join in a global artistic movement of love, unity and activism, when White Butterflies lands at Southbank Centre as part of Alchemy.

Created by Nepalese artist, Milan Rai, this installation project aims to make art accessible for everyone – taking over public spaces with visually-stunning displays of white butterflies.

What started as a simple art project has grown into a global expression of hope and peace enabling participants to co-create, connect and share around the world.

Come along and be a part of this worldwide art project.
