Innovative regeneration plans urgently need your support
The London Mayor has kickstarted a campaign to regenerate Acton through Street Art.
In the sixth round of Crowdfund London he has awarded 23 different projects a total of £600,000... with the Acton one
'Acton Unframed' being given £15,000.
The aim is to to create 5 large scale murals. Jamal Edwards MBE, will feature on one of the murals by Matt Small and local creative talent will be given the chance to collaborate on some of the work.
Organisers now have until 12 August to reach the funding goal of £53,493.
Kal di Paola writes: ''We have 23 days to complete our fundraise and this is the moment where it gets really nerve racking - if we don't raise ALL of it we won't get any of it!
Thank you in advance. The project aims to attract visitors to the area and serve as a catalyst to engage the community and to inspire commercial and social change in the neighbourhood.
The team have managed to gain all the right attention for this project, currently being crowdfunded on Spacehive, it has had pledges from 140 people including Ealing Council (£10K), The Mayor of London (£15K) and have signed up world renowned artist Fin DAC (currently in Mexico painting an official Frida Kahlo mural) to paint the first wall.
They are currently at 70% funded and hope to get further community support to complete the round and make the idea of putting Acton on the map a firm reality!
