In the lead up to Waltham Forest becoming the first ever London Borough of Culture in 2019 we are celebrating the borough’s Cultural Stars with a new temporary art installation in central Walthamstow.
All of the stars were nominated by the local community for their contribution to the arts and culture scene.
The mural can be seen at 198 Hoe Street - the former site of the Grillstock restaurant – which is available to let and currently on the market. While awaiting a new tenant, Waltham Forest Council invited Mark Clack of Wood Street Walls to commission a window installation that celebrates our exceptional Cultural Stars, and inspires and excites passers-by about our year as London Borough of Culture in 2019. The final artwork was designed and created by HATCH (Dave Smith).
Among the stars are youth leaders and teachers, artists and volunteers, dancers and musicians, from all walks of life and from all parts of the borough –all of whom make a tangible difference to the lives of people living and working in Waltham Forest, as well as visitors.
