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?

In March this year, we were about to begin our next project with Albany Court and children from George Mitchell Primary. However due to the changing circumstances of COVID-19 we were sadly unable to do this.

We have been working closely with partners to understand the changes and challenges they are facing and how we can support them to maintain a relationship remotely during this period.

Our Story, Our Street will take place between May and the end of June, with groups from George Mitchell Primary School, Albany Court and Glebelands, extra care schemes. This project is led by artists Kathryn Horak-Hallett and Ben Connors.

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?

Together we will create an imaginary street by sharing our own real life stories and experiences. Using these stories as inspiration, we will imagine places and characters, and make artworks such as drawings, sculptures, poems and collage.  Artists Kathy and Ben will then use these artworks to create a short animation film.
