Pollinator Pathmaker is an artwork by Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg. It is part of Create a Buzz, a three-year programme based at the Eden Project, Cornwall, focused on communicating the story of native pollinators: their vital role, their current plight, and their restoration.

Owned by the Eden Trust, the Eden Project is a global arts, science and educational charity with a social and environmental mission: to create a movement that builds relationships between people and the natural world to demonstrate the power of working together for the benefit of all living things.

Eden champions creativity and critical thinking, and presents thoughtful and thought-provoking cross-disciplinary cultural, community and education programmes on-site and across local and national communities.

Founded as a Millennium Project in 2001, Eden welcomes over one million visitors each year, it has a digital reach of several million and as Eden Project establishes new sites across the UK and in China, Australia and New Zealand, its reach is growing.

Eden is at the forefront of emerging cultural practices in regeneration, conservation, sustainability, horticulture, architecture, community outreach and education. The organisation has an extensive network of scientific expertise and partners at leading local, national and international universities and research bodies.The world-famous Biomes house a living ethno-botanical collection. To date Eden has commissioned and exhibited such world-revered and diverse artists as El Anatsui, Wolfgang Buttress, Hayden Dunham, Ryan Gander, Jenny Kendler, Julian Opie, Peter Randall-Page, Tim Shaw and Studio Swine.

Eden is a hybrid of gallery, museum, garden, venue, laboratory and university – a cross-disciplinary cultural leader for the 21st century, uniquely placed to offer transformative opportunities to artists engaged with social-environmental subjects.


International Edition Founding Commissioners
With each international founding Edition, a new regional Plant Palette is commissioned.

LAS Art Foundation

LAS Art Foundation is a new type of arts organisation that interrogates our present and gives form to future imaginaries. Working with visionary artists and thinkers, they produce ground-breaking projects and experiences that explore the possibilities of tomorrow. Driven by curiosity, LAS and their collaborators investigate topics ranging from AI and quantum computing to ecology and interspecies relationships. With each endeavour, they nurture exchanges between art, science and technology, and reimagine the role of an arts organisation as one that shapes and evolves with our collective futures.

Championing new ideas in contemporary art since 1970, the Serpentine has presented pioneering exhibitions for half a century from a wide range of emerging practitioners to the most internationally recognised artists of our time. Across two sites only 5 minutes apart, in London’s Kensington Gardens, the Serpentine presents a year-round, free programme of exhibitions, architecture, education, live events and technological innovation, in the park and beyond. Proud to maintain free access for all visitors, thanks to its unique location the Serpentine also reaches an exceptionally broad audience and maintains a deep connection with its local community.


Established in 1958, the Garfield Weston Foundation is a family-founded charitable grant-making trust and has donated over £1.2 billion in total, of which over half has been given away in the past ten years alone. In the most recent financial year the Foundation donated more than £88million to over 2,100 charities across the UK. Having established one of the most respected charitable institutions in the UK, the Weston Family Trustees today remain highly active and hands-on. The Foundation’s funding comes from an endowment of shares in the family business – a successful model that still endures today and as the businesses have grown, so too have the charitable donations.
