Over the past few months St Luke's has worked with Bunhill Heritage on several initiatives in the area, and now we can welcome artist Georgie Fay, who has begun a residency at St Luke’s Community Centre, Central Street for one year as part of the project.

Georgie will lead a programme of workshops with residents to create a new work of public art inspired by the rich history of the area. Bunhill Heritage is a three-year project from Islington Heritage Service. Georgie will run many community workshops to help inspire her artwork, and several groups including St Luke's over 55s and local school kids will be involved to truly reflect our diverse and fascinating area. During Georgie's residency St Luke's service users and other local residents will be encouraged to create art, develop skills, increase wellbeing and feel part of their community.

Watch this space for more information about Georgie and the Bunhill Heritage initiative - we will be running an interview with Georgie with more information about the project in our next newsletter.
