Let’s check upon the changes in South Acton again!
What street art is there to see now? What's new? How many commemorative plaques will we spot? Will we recognise anyone around the mosaic oak tree installed by Carrie Reichardt and The Treatment Rooms Collective? Who will we meet and who will we visit?
Be at 2 pm at ACTON TOWN STATION (Do get it right, Acton has a record number of stations!) on Tuesday, 13th August, for a stroll to explore this part of London and see things that you may not have noticed, visit unassuming places and learn about this rapidly changing area, its distant and recent past, as well as its regenerated or maybe, some will say, gentrified future that is promised by new brightly coloured murals by Karen F. Wydler, ATM Street Art and Thierry Noir. You will hear what ARTification is about too.
That's not all! We will not finish until we've examined the extraordinary Mosaic Sofa by Eoghan Ebrill, Karen and Carrie in South Acton Park and paid a visit to the South Acton Working Men’s Club, one of the oldest in the country and threatened with closure.
Well, we may take longer than two hours if we decide to go on and see the most exciting dwelling in the area so make sure you don't need to dash back. Please check the weather forecast before you set off, have some water and a snack with you, and also, please let us know at the start if you don’t want to be in the pictures or videos!
