‘You Are Here’ Project
A collaborative project between the Ben Uri Gallery, St John’s Wood Library, artist Millie Nice and local residents. Inspired by key works from the Ben Uri Collection, a new piece of work, about the community, will be made and installed in St John’s Wood Library reflecting local residents sense of heritage and place.
How to get involved: Millie will be running a free workshop at the library on Wednesday 8th February 4.30pm – 7.00pm, when participants can draw and share stories about the local area and even have their portrait drawn – which may be included in the final piece. People can also get involved by visiting the library between 1st and 22nd February and completing a worksheet.
