Calling All Artists

This amazing message has just been sent by Councillor Christine Boyd - especially for the artists here in Leabank Square & all our friends in Hackney Wick:

Calling all ARTISTS
Put yourself on the map… and make arts happen!

Arts Space of the Future

The nation is awash with hypothetical discussion about the future of the creative industries. Meanwhile, in Dalston, real decisions need to be made about what is required for the arts to truly benefit from regeneration and the Olympics.

The Mayor of Hackney is committed to making culture integral to the future of Hackney and a 5-Borough Festival of the Cultural Olympiad aims to bring art to all.

How can we contribute?
How can we make it happen?

Join us to see the winners of the Arts Council England / RIBA London competition Arts Space of the Future and to put yourself on two new maps of Dalston showing our cultural assets and public spaces. These maps will be used in developing a new cultural strategy for Hackney and to launch cultural Olympiad projects.

You are a cultural asset!
Come to Arcola to contribute to the creative future of Dalston!

Friday 6 June 2-3pm

Can we not get these artists to do installations in & around the Wick? Maybe in conjunction with that rock guy?

I wouldn't mind shooting off a few emails to artistic peeps inviting them to turn Hackney Wick into an open-air art gallery.
