Eltham Arts Wall projectIn 2019, Eltham Arts completed their inclusive, multimedia arts and wellbeing project, ‘Wall’ which involved more than 2,000 people from their local community in Royal Borough of Greenwich, London.

Their aim for the project was to bring the community together and advocate creativity for all, allowing people to acknowledge barriers and explore ways to deal with them. The project involved people from aged 18 months to 80 years, who participated irrespective of their background and experience in arts.

Eltham Arts collaborated with local creative and community groups, schools and their local library to engage participants. The resulting photographs, film, songs, poetry and visual arts, were curated into an exhibition which included more than 900 2D bricks, plus 21 3D bricks contributed by the SE9 community and five canvas bricks from the community in Eltham in New Zealand, who were inspired to start their own Bricks on the Wall project.
