Our Story, Our Street - Quality Street - Year 2
If we imagined Quality Street as a real road in Leyton, what would it look like? Who would live there? And how would it reflect all of our wonderful work over the past two years?
Tapestry Tuesdays - Quality Street Year 2
Working with artist Kathryn Horak-Hallett and guest artist Polly Beestone, Year 4 pupils from George Mitchell Primary School and residents from Albany Court came together to share their experiences of the local area and explore places which are important to the community.
Quality Street is building mutually beneficial, cross-generational connections in Leyton, increasing happiness and wellbeing, across three generations living in the area

Every Wednesday a group of seventeen Year 3 students from George Mitchell Primary School have met with adults from Glebelands, a sheltered housing group in Leyton to explore ways in which different generations can come together to make, imagine and celebrate.
Generations United - part of Quality Street Year 1
Generations United brought together Year 5 boys and adults from Leyton Orient Walking Football Club for 6 weeks through April and May this year with sessions taking place at “The Hub” community space, Leyton Orient FC. Led by artists Ben and Surya the group explored themes of Games, Play and Football. This collaboration was an exciting new venture, bringing creative arts and sports together.
Our Celebration - Quality Street Year 1
Our Celebration is part of the Quality Street project. From March to June, an intergenerational group aged from 7-100 met at Albany Court sheltered housing scheme each week. Working with artists Chuck, Mia and Kathy the group explored the theme of celebration through photography, costume, framing, storytelling and making. Over the weeks they shared personal stories of celebrations, experimented with different creative processes and had a lot of fun!
