About the project

Maxilla Studios resident artist Rachel Nee has been working with local families who live close to the Westway motorway. Together they have been collecting data from air pollution monitors placed outside homes close to the motorway. The data collected is now being used to inform the rest of the project with workshops for teens and other activities for local families.

To book a place for the teens workshops happening in February and March please email Rachael Nee at rachaelnee@gmail.com or call 07813 098811
