We have lots of exciting new art activities at the Redmond Centre and around!
The Edge is running a project to get young people to work with a local artist to design some of the hoardings around the old Nichol and Needwood blocks on Kayani Avenue. These free art workshops will take place at the Edge and are open to all young people living on and around Woodberry Down Estate. The new hoardings with the art work created will be going up in April – more info to come. The workshops will be starting in March, so if you are interested in getting involved, or know someone who is, please get in touch with Miriam at firstname.lastname@example.org or give The Edge a call on 020 8356 1063.
In addition to this, there is not one, but two exhibitions this month! There are free drinks and nibbles at all of our open evenings, so take your pick and come down to one or both of the exhibitions and see what you think.
Pop-up exhibition: “Haiku Prelude – Haiku Kami” Opening Thursday 12th March 7 – 9pm

“Jason Bowles” Opening Thursday 19th March 7 – 9pm
Jason is a local painter living and working in a warehouse by the New River, just off Seven Sisters Road. His work is a fascinating and modern approach to painting portraits – using his art to question the boundary between beauty and grotesqueness. Come along and see what you make of his paintings at the Redmond Centre on Thursday 19th March 7-9pm.
In April, our very own WOODCO will be having an exhibition in April and May. It will open on the 23rd April. More details closer to the time – watch this space!
