Developed with and for local residents, the programme has already engaged the community through an ongoing programme of artist’s residencies, exhibitions, workshops and temporary hoardings.
The coming year will see the project work closely with additional arts organisations Park Theatre and Furtherfield who, alongside core partners John Jones, All Change and City North, will deliver a rich programme of creative learning projects and exhibitions for schools and community groups together with employment and training opportunities for local residents.
At the heart of the programme are a number of new temporary and permanent artworks commissioned to animate shared public spaces and promote a sense of place. These include a major public art and lighting commission for the railway bridge abutments on Seven Sisters Road by artist Morag Myerscough and a permanent public artwork for the new City North development.
Each quarter we hold wider networking breakfast meetings for local arts organisations to meet and learn more about the opportunities available. This forms part of the legacy of the project which seeks to engender increased partnership working and a stronger voice for the arts in Finsbury Park.
Finsbury Park Creative Hub networking meetings are open to all arts organisations based or operating in the area. If you would like to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
