Opening night

With the gallery space cleaned, audio installed, photographs and historical documents up and in place, drinks delivered we are ready to welcome guests. A steady stream of Warner residents past and present begin to arrive, along with members of Waltham Forest Council, friends and neighbours. One of the many things that made the night so special for me was seeing the sense of community and pride that bringing everyone together generated. It was a fantastic night, thanks to everyone for making it so special. (KG)

We have the keys!

We have the keys to the space, the space is a former Warner rent office on Brettenham Road. The actual address is 2A Rushbrook Crescent. The office is one storey, contains a front and back room, a small kitchen and toilet, plus a yard and a large shed. The smell of damp is overpowering when we first arrive, and the space hasn’t been used for quite some time. The task of installing the show in a two day period is about to begin! (KG)

Publication goes to print!

An exciting day today as our publication, designed by Sara Carnholm, went off to print at Aldgate Press. The 80 page book contains interviews, contemporary and historic photographs, as well as research and introduction by Kirstin Sibley. Photo above shows Lucy and Steve choosing paper. Looking forward to it being delivered for our exhibition opening at the end of May. (KG)
