With huge thanks to all who contributed, especially our main sponsors, Gogar Services and Fujifilm UK.
“UNLOCKED” – a public art project by the Ealing satellite group of London Independent Photography, with the generous support of Ealing Police Station, to stimulate reflection and discussion of the impact of the pandemic on our daily lives and ways forward. This unprecedented project will be on five storeys, on the front of the Police station, providing a canvas, the likes of which have probably never been seen in London before.
We need to ask a favour! This is a huge exhibition project planned for September, as part of BEAT. It’s a project that has taken over a year of planning and discussion.
Alongside generous support by FujiFilm UK, we’ve applied for an arts grant to help with the funding. As part of that application for the grant, there is a crowdfunding aspect. The grant committee will monitor how many backers we have and from that, gauge interest in the outdoor exhibition and decide to back this unique project or not. We would hugely appreciate your support in making out 5-storey public art project become a reality.
Please back our project and make your pledge, regardless of how large or small: https://www.spacehive.com/ealingunlocked Every individual pledge will bring us closer to getting the grant and bringing this to life.
Kindly share the link or this post far and wide. Thank you.
Alongside the exhibition, we are also planning a talk and workshops given by photographers in the group, about this project, in conjunction with OPEN Ealing.
An Exhibition By Ealing London Independent Photography
HOME can mean different things to each of us. It can be a familiar place to rest after a long day. It can be a refuge. It may be more transient. ? Is it the comfort of familiar spaces? Or a place to figuratively lay your hat? Is your home in fact a result of not having a home?
The group exhibition is part of BEAT – the Borough of Ealing Art trail 2019. See below for details. Rickyard in Walpole Park. Hope you can swing by and look through a fascinating set of imagery.
