Night of Festivals Hounslow 2019 was a tremendous success for celebrating local heritage and people’s wellbeing on the weekend of 15 and 16 June. Thought-provoking conversation were had with members of the diverse local community. However ArtReach, the producers of Night of Festivals Hounslow, are now continuing to ask the community their thoughts on the local heritage of this culturally diverse urban borough of London.
Night of Festivals Hounslow has often celebrated local heritage with this year’s focus on migration to Hounslow from 1965-1975, which resulted in a colourful and informative heritage comic from pupils at Beaver Community Primary School featuring the stories of immigration. You can view a copy of this wonderful creation here: Comic
Now ArtReach looks to the present to understand what today’s Hounslow community thinks about heritage, what people find interesting and how local organisations can better celebrate and explore this heritage in an exciting and meaningful way.
Following consultations on Saturday 3 August and Sunday 11 August in Hounslow Treaty Centre, the results will be shared with Hounslow organisations.
