Tag Archives: Black History Month

I am currently working in Acton Park creating a Story telling seating area.

In celebration of  the “Roots to the fruit project” as part of Black history month 2011.

I’ve been working with community elders and local children to create carved imagery for the Seating area.

The London Plane timber was donated by Ealing Council from a previously felled specimen.

The wood carves very well and has a distinctive grain pattern somtimes called lacewood due to its likeness to the patterns of lacework.

The project has been supported by Acton Arts Forum and The Apple Art block.

 The work is to be unveiled on Nov 5th 2011, 2-5pm.

The pictures for the Active Citizens Awards are up! We previously blogged that one of our long standing volunteers had been nominated for this and won. Volunteer Centre Southwark have now uploaded (a whopping 138 photos!) them onto flickr. The evening’s performances were themed around Black History Month. Here are just a few of our favourites.
