As the new school takes shape, we will engage with local school children and surrounding communities through creative arts projects promoting inclusion, collaboration and participation. The outcomes of some of this work will feature on this site.
Over the coming weeks, we will create seven original pieces of artwork in collaboration with Hermitage Primary School, to be displayed on hoarding panels in front of the site of Mulberry Academy London Dock. These artwork pieces will be created by Year 10 GCSE Art Students and Year 5 students at Hermitage Primary School.
The theme of the artwork will focus around the history, heritage and communities of the Docklands area and Tower Hamlets more generally. Each piece of artwork will be inspired by a different street name or place name which tells us something about the history of the area – e.g. East India Dock, Cinnamon Street and Jamaica Street.
The work will combine natural forms with collage and will brilliantly incorporate the work of the older and younger students together.
This arts project was supported by St George.
