I’ve been approached by a couple of the folks over at Grow Heathrow − http://www.transitionheathrow.com/grow-heathrow − to help run some creative urban art workshops for the local community in the villages of Hayes & Harlington, over near Heathrow Airport.
As the local church (the church of St Peter & St Paul) was central to the community, they decided to do something on the wall of the church hall. It was great having an inter-generational project to work on (participants were between the ages of 7 and 70), especially as the project was to highlight the proposed expansion by Heathrow for a 5th runway, that would wipe out 3 local villages that had been there since before the twelfth century.
In terms of bringing together the local community, it worked well. Everyone involved lent a hand, and it was beautiful to see.
