On Wednesday 4th May 2016, the Church Street Local Projects Shelf launched – a community-run bookshelf for Church Street Library.
The Local Projects Shelf features the many projects and publications about the Church Street and Edgware Road area and exists as a growing archive of the neighbourhood.
The shelf was born out of the need to share the vast amount of materials produced by art organisations, academic institutions, individual practitioners and researchers about the neighbourhood, with the public that constitutes it. The shelf is designed by Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad, and invites donations of any publications or materials about the area.
Coinciding with the launch of the Local Projects Shelf, the event launched Studies on a Road, a series of pamphlets documenting projects commissioned through the Serpentine Galleries’ Edgware Road Project as well as Action of Street/Action of Room a publication by students from Westminster Academy and artists Febrik. You can download these below.
At the launch event, the publication contributors discussed their projects and we shared our experiences of living and working in the neighbourhood over food from the market.
