FerArts run dynamic artist-led workshops by collaborating with youth organisations, education and local authorities encouraging young people to get back into learning, creative employment or effectively to promote their own portfolios. The Westway flyover art project aims to create an open air gallery of art work displayed along the 23 acres below the flyover from Westbourne Park down to Latimer Road over the next 10 months starting Sept 2017. We aim to display at least 10 community group pieces which will be developed through workshops led in community spaces. The remainder of the gallery will be created by local artists who are living or working in the W10 and W11 area. The idea is to showcase local emerging talent while also enganging the community in a year long project which will see them brighten up the spaces below the flyover. The gallery will begin by the Al-Manaar Mosque on Acklam Road and will follow the flyover down to the Westway Sports Centre on Crowthorne Road.

What we'll deliver:

  • An outdoor gallery for one year
  • Artist-led community art workshops
  • Artwork by community groups on 10 wall spaces
  • Artwork by local artists on 10 wall spaces

Why it's a great idea:

Street art has a positive effect on the community. This project will bring different community groups together to work on a final project for the local area to enjoy. The open gallery will attract more people into the North Kensington area and can help boost trade.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying materials needed for artwork
  • Workshops led by artists for community groups
  • Community groups such as schools and youth clubs to create their own piece for the gallery.
  • Commissioned local artists to create artwork
  • Installation of artwork along the 23 acres
