Tower Hamlets Cemetary Park biodiversity mural MONDAY

Support a local artist to paint a prize-winning mural that raises awareness of biodiversity loss

Date and time

A local mural artist needs help painting an award winning design at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park .

The mural is one of the winners of the Grantham Climate Art Prize 2021, designed by a young person with the aim of raising awarness of important local species at risk of extenction because of climate change and human interference and engaging people who live in the area. The winners will be announced in full next week, and an exhibit of the winning mural artworks will be on display at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow this November.

What's the task? The task will include prepping the wall with some cleaning and painting a plain background colour, the area needs some clearing so that people entering the Cemetary Park can see the mural clearly and the artist may need some general support such as holding ladders while they work. It's also important the artist is not working alone for long periods, so you can be there to cheer them up.

What is needed? When you sign up, please write in the comments what time you can make it along. Task leader Simon will get in touch to confirm.

What to bring? * Wear old clothes or what you don't mind maybe getting painty as overalls cannot be provided, but add warm layers (the weather is meant to be fine, but you never know). * Bring gloves if you have them (like your gardening gloves) to protect your hands. Some latex ones may be available if you forget.

When is this task on? We will be painting 11-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on subsequent days until the mural is done. Please consider if you can come down on your lunch hour, make it part of your daily walk, or for a nosey at the emerging mural.
