This recently completed 95 square metre Mural Project was created by myself and 53 young people aged between 4 - 19 years old within 15 days in West London's , Ealing community of Hanwell . The project was realised with the kind support of local residents and funding from amonst others : The Big Lottery Fund, Community Space Challenge, Catch 22,, EASE, Ealing Homes, Kier and the Acton Youth Offending Service by JonBurke
The responses by all sectors of the community were absolutely amazing and the work was featured on GMTV and BBC1 briefly as well local newspapers an an unveiling was done by The Mayor of Ealing, Rajinder Mann with no fewer than 150 visitors on the day and a mini food / community festival was orchestrated.
The common thread of all the comments was that the image was fantastic but the cohesion in the community around this creation for them and through them made a indelible impression in formerly derelict, Copley Estate.
Plans are underway for similar projects in other boroughs if you have any proposals or suggestions feel free to call me on 07880632849
