Stitching community together

Lady Godiva’s arrival in Walthamstow yesterday was beautiful… But the community project to welcome her, led by Studio 3 Arts, was inspiring. The grounds of town hall were transformed from austere and formal to spritely and playful. The trees were imbued with personality and cheek. The gates were woven with festivity. The fountain was filled with magical creatures. And while artists and arts organisations were commissioned to lead this transformation, it was volunteers across our community who made it happen. This involvement from across our area made this event rich with personality and gloriously vibrant. Artists invited, planted seeds of ideas, and said yes, you can climb into the trees of town hall to celebrate this moment- let’s make this Olympic event our own.
