As a group we have planned an exhibition as part of BEAT 2021. Given all the uncertainties due to Covid we had been exploring outdoor options for exhibiting and through a series of connections have ended up with Ealing Police Station agreeing we can use the front of their building as a canvas for our next exhibition! It is huge so will have quite an impact. The exhibition is called ‘UNLOCKED – looking back, looking forward’ and is a reflection on the strange times we find ourselves in, the things we have noticed over the past year and our hopes for the future.
Of course it is going to be more costly to pull off so we are in the process of raising funds for it. On contacting Ealing Council they now have their own crowdfunding page for community initiatives and projects and steered us in that direction. As part of that they will consider backing a project but like to see a group raising funds and demonstrating commitment themselves. So whilst we hadn't anticipated it this means we have ended up with a local crowdfunding page for Unlocked. Do go and have a look and if you'd like to support the group then do pledge. We are 10% of the way there at the time of writing this post.
