How do you and your family and community make yourself at home, in Brent or wherever you live? How is art and creativity a part of your experience of home?

Join us for a community listening event co-organised with Brent Citizens. We will visit artworks by Sarah Rose and Katarzyna Perlak and hear how they reflect the artists’ experiences of making home. We will talk about how we make home in Willesden, what gets in the way of this and how creativity is or might be part of creating the place where we want to live.

This second conversation will take place in Willesden, and we welcome Willesden community members and anyone else who wants to be part of the conversation. It will be followed by conversations in the last Brent Biennial hub of Kilburn on Friday 26 August. A culminating event in September will draw all three conversations together and help us shape the future of Metroland Cultures‘ work in Brent.
