QUALITY STREET

Already supporting local initiatives and events such as Hackney WickED, L&Q identified the negative attitude held by artists towards developers and constructors developing the area and wanted to implement a campaign to offer a creative outlet that would mitigate the graffiti seen across other developments.

L&Q sought the help of Wood Street Walls CIC, whose artists are currently based in Hackney Wick, to consult on the approach to ensure local talent was represented and 180m of hoardings surrounding the perimeter of the site was covered with artwork.
