E17 Art Trail 2011: 2-11 September 2011.

It’s nearly time for this year’s Art Trail to begin, where you can explore the work of local artists and musicians. “The E17 Art Trail is an annual festival and independent artist run project. It provides a framework¬† for artists and makers to exhibit and promote their work and art practice. The neighbourhood of E17 opens their doors for 10 days and invites you in. “

Street Party Funding

According to the August 11 2011 edition of the Waltham Forest Guardian, “Hoe Street Councillors agreed at a ward forum meeting to offer money [¬£600] to help with the organisation and insurance of community get-togethers … the deadline for applications is Thursday August 18”, Is anyone willing to follow this up to find out if we’re eligible to apply? The contact name is Dawn Poilis at Waltham Forest Council (I’m not including her email address to avoid her being subject to spam messages).

The Mill on Coppermill Lane opens on August 6th.

As you may be aware, The Mill project at the top of Coppermill Lane aims to provide a space and resource for all of us in the Coppermill area where we can explore and develop “community-led innovations”.

You can find out more about The Mill, along with details of upcoming events, by going to The Mill website.

They plan to ‘open for business’ on Saturday August 6th so people can find out more by visiting the building.

If you have building or decorating skills and can spare some time, I’m sure they’d still appreciate an offer of help in getting the building ready.

They’d also like some help from local people who can offer a few hours of reception and administrative support on a regular basis. Visit the website, or visit The Mill,¬† for more information.
