Islington Word Festival
The annual Islington Word Festival aims to explore and celebrate the pleasure of reading, writing and freedom of expression across the London borough. John Jones was delighted to be involved by hosting some eye-catching Word2013 Festival Hoardings created by All Change and Magpie Studio. Entitled ‘Frames of Mind’, fragments of poetry created by local people of all ages were displayed across our New Arts Building construction hoardings. Each piece of writing is presented within a specially produced ‘speech bubble frame’, hand-made by skilled craftspeople in our Finsbury Park workshops. Each frame has been cut, joined and sanded to a bespoke finish before being sprayed in bold neon paint colours.
