The Hackney Peace Carnival Mural at the entrance to the Garden is an iconic Dalston landmark. This Sunday it will be celebrated with a talk about its history and the launch of a campaign by OPEN Dalston and the London Mural Preservation Society to ensure that it is safeguarded for the future.
The event will start with an overview of Reclaim The Mural, a year-long project at the Whitechapel Art Gallery by art collective The Work in Progress. Marie Murray from OPEN Dalston will give a brief introduction to the Mural then Ruth Miller from the London Mural Preservation Society will talk about its background, before moving in to the Garden where there will be an opportunity to ask more questions and to get involved with the campaign.
So if you would like to know more about the mural’s history and get involved in the restoration campaign, please come along on Sunday. There is no need to book, just turn up at the mural at 3pm. Even if it rains, the event will go ahead in the Garden.
