'We are happy to announce that we are producing a full-colour book of exciting artists and creatives from Havering and surrounding areas of London and Essex. With the support of Havering Changing, the digital version will be released in October 2020. The book will feature a brilliant mix of mid-career to established artists working in a wide range of urban styles, show the amazing creations of 40+ artists and delve into their world of creative talent. This book is perfect for anyone who is a fan of street art, graffiti, illustration and print, or who has an appreciation for the art world.’
Lisa Brennan & Majida Burch
Co-Founders Brennan & Burch
Brennan & Burch is a British interiors brand where Lisa Brennan's fantastical, colourful illustrations and hand-drawn characters decorate wallpapers, rugs and prints. Her strong and thought provoking style is timeless, recognisable and unites everything Brennan & Burch creates. Brennan & Burch co-founders Lisa & Majida have been friends since the 1980s when they met at school in Camden Town and were heavily influenced by street style, rockabillies, punk, casuals and acid house music.
‘The Art Book is an incredible opportunity to shout about and showcase the amazing talent of local artists. It will prove to anyone living in Havering considering getting more involved with the arts that anything is possible. B&B are a shining example of that and I’m so pleased to support them to inspire the next generation of local artists’.
Project Director, Havering Changing
Havering Changing is a new project supporting local people, living and working, in Harold Hill, Orchard Village, Rainham and Romford to choose, create and take part in their own programme of inspiring arts and culture. In August 2019, Havering Changing was thrilled to be one of only twelve new places in the country successful in its application to join Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places programme, for a four year period starting in November 2019. Havering Changing will trial radical new ideas that engage local people in arts and culture in a variety of new ways. Havering Changing passionately believes putting local communities at the heart of cultural decision making will lead to a more connected, ambitious and confident community that believes they have just as much right to amazing cultural experiences as everyone else.
