The Latymer Mapping Project

Laytimer Mapping Project Flyer Laytimer Mapping Project Flyer

The Latymer Mapping Project was a local community project run by Latymer Projects and artist Constantine Gras in collaboration with local residents of North Kensington between March 2012 and July 2013. An initial 6 week workshop programme, comprising of group discussions, presentations and walks culminated in an alternative map for the area, exploring a range of issues from unofficial histories, regeneration and gentrification to personal and collective notions of community.On Thursday 13th March we will present our research, methodology and processes and share our experiences of running a community-focused project in North Kensington, as well as reflecting on the response from the local community to the final map.Project website:

BAR gallery Willesden, 95 High Road, LONDON, NW10 2SF

The Gallery has been home to both local and international artists, who’ve contributed to the creative scene in Brent, through its social impact and strong community. This event will be a recognition of the invaluable achievements of Bar and; the memories that have been created and the bright future yet to come!
This unique conceptual show, curated by Kevin, will involved the results of projecting and painting the Ghosts of resident artists onto the gallery walls. The event will offer an opportunity to interact in a new way with the gallery space, and make a mark on what has long been the home of many local artists’.
Kevin says “Ghosts is an expression of what I, and other artists feel is an abrupt end to an exciting gallery.  A feeling of not wanting to leave and leaving something of ourselves attached onto the walls of our past.  But this closure will enable us to look forward, face new challenges, using the uncertainty of space and funding to our advantage by making work that is reactive and pushing new boundaries.  And as we work under this new light, we ask our selves is it possible that our best work is yet to be created?’
