I was so delighted to go to the exhibition of work by the trainees at South Kilburn Studios last week. I commissioned the Studios as part of the South Kilburn Public Art Programme, with the intention of animating a disused space and providing opportunities for local young people to gain skills and experience. Through the hard work and dedication of The Architecture Foundation, Practice Architecture, Brent Council and the tenants and trainees of the Studios, the project’s been such a success that the council have agreed to fund it for an additional 6 months, and Number 10 are arranging a visit to find out more!
The exhibition runs from 9-23 September. For more information visit the South Kilburn Studios website. There’s more information about the wider Public Art programme in the Consultancy section of this site.
