This summer we’re working with Paint the Change, Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives‘ Halima Khanom, plus more community partners to create a mural on the front of our building.
We want to welcome you back and celebrate the local community as we come out of lockdown.
This mural will celebration of all identities, and we want as many people as possible to be part of it!

Halima Khanom is the Heritage Officer, Learning and Participation at the Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives. She has over 10 years of experience and is interested in using heritage as a way of engaging socially isolated and marginalized groups with place, particularly their own locale.
Paint the Change is a global street art project for social justice. We believe that public art can play a powerful role in stimulating discussions around urgent social issues. A mural is not just a work of art: it becomes a social and digital event and a focus for dialogue and progress.
