Improving public spaces together

Research, Materials, Engagement

Shape Newham is a community and artist led initiative that will deliver 18 public space improvement projects in eight town centres across Newham, London.

In Newham, Local Works Studio will share skills and knowledge about making processes – working with local residents and community groups to make art works for their neighbourhoods, through a series of workshops.

“Newham is a great place to live and we want to make it better – through Shape Newham we will improve places together.”

Rohksana Fiaz OBE, Mayor of Newham
