|My favourite window - The Samaritans by Caroline Collinge & Edmond Salter|
Wednesday, 28 December 2011
I think i'm going blind, or i'm just stupid! I walk down Willesden High Road every day without pretty much noticing very much at all. However, in the run up to Christmas, Willesden Green has become an artists playpen courtesy of New Windows On Willesden Green which has curated a series of window animations along the high road marking the 25 days leading up to Christmas - a shopping advent calendar. The windows have been created by emerging designers and there have been loads of events including card and gingerbread making, screen printing and vintage hair tutorials curtesy of the lovely Lena Weber Vintage pioneer and editor of and The Vintage Guide to London.
The New Windows on Willesden Green project is funded by the Mayor’s Outer London Fund and is being delivered for Brent Council and Design for London by The Architecture Foundation in collaboration with Meanwhile Space. From January to March, they will be making empty shops in Willesden Green available for individuals, companies and community groups to try out their ideas. They are particularly interested in creatives so If you're interested in knowing more click here!
