Phase Two of Grenfell Memorial Community Mosaic Announced

Thanks to support from the Kensington and Chelsea Foundation, Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre and ACAVA (Association for Cultural Advancement through Visual Art) are delighted to announce the continuation of the Grenfell Memorial Community Mosaic project: Bloom.

Over a two year period, the second phase will see a series of mosaic leaves, fabricated by North Kensington community groups, tenants and residents associations and schools, added to the existing artwork on 14th of each month, commencing September 2019.

The design brief for the leaves has taken inspiration from local participants as well as foliage from trees close to Grenfell Tower. The 24 leaves will feature 72 gold flecks, paying tribute to the lives sadly lost in the fire, or a single word: Justice, depicted in several community languages. The community groups working on the project will be announced soon, along with information about how local people can get involved.

In addition, ACAVA will be offering four paid part-time photography menteeship opportunities for local young adults to work alongside our commissioned photographer Zute Lightfoot. Further details, including how to apply, will follow soon.

Al Manaar and ACAVA would like to thank all groups who have expressed interest in taking part in phase two of Bloom to date.
