16 Days. 11,000 Residents. 10 commissioned Artworks. One story coming to life on the streets of Waltham Forest.
From Page to Pavement invites you to collaborate with thousands of local residents to animate spaces across borough; transforming them into multi-arts imaginations of the Waltham Forest based author-illustrator Benji Davies’ award-winning Grandad's Island.
This much loved picture book inspired by Waltham Forest’s surprising exotic ecology (spot the local parakeets!) celebrates a close grandfather and grandson relationship with warmth and style.
Like the book, From Page to Pavement will take us on a journey to intriguing and imaginative places. Working with Walthamstow’s Artillery, you are invited to share your ideas and talents to bring alive everything from a cozy attic full of curiosities to the deep jungle of an island paradise.
This project is about the process of creating together, the ideas and skills shared, and friends made along the way. There will be a number of ways to get involved, whether you want to be involved for an hour’s workshop or throughout the project! Details of how to get involved will be announced soon.
