Our Journey

Art on Middlesex Street Estate
Art on Middlesex Street Estate joined LifeSkills created with Barclays1 week ago

Petticoat Lane, famous for its colourful textile market, is also home to the Middlesex Street Estate, a tower and a block of flats arranged around a podium, with a close-knit community. Turkish Artist Güneş Terkol will collaborate with residents to create a new mural on one of the Estate’s outer walls. This permanent art work will be made for the residents to be proud of, and passersby to enjoy. In addition, Terkol will conduct a series of free workshops inviting the local community to create a large-scale textile banner which will be publicly displayed on Whitechapel High Street, on the night of the event. Both works will be unveiled during Art Night 2017, on the 1st of July. In its second edition, the free festival, curated by Fatoş Üstek, aims to celebrate the diversity of the residents of London’s East End.
