In June 2014 ForumArts organised the first National Sculpture Symposium with Marshall Murray and London Sculpture Workshop at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens in Kent. A selection panel of Julian Wild (ForumArts), Oliver Hawkins (Marshall Murray) and Alma Zevi (curator and writer) chose 6 artists to work intensively over 10 days to create ambitious and large-scale outdoor sculptures.
