On Thursday 13th September I went to the Born and Bred exhibition by Rowan Arts Project on Holloway Road. When I finished University I interned with them as an Arts event organiser for 7 months raising awareness of arts within the community helping with different projects and events. I joined when their exhibition Making Inroads had just finished which was about bringing people from different communities and hearing their stories.
They asked me to produce an illustration for their project born and bred to contribute to getting planning from the arts council. I Illustrated the building of Chris Stevens Ltd using watercolour for half and pencil and pencil for the bottom half of the illustration.
Here is my illustration in the book
Here are some photographs of the night and some of the stories
It was such an interesting project and was glad to be apart of it.
