Yesterday, Rooff attended the unveiling of the new hoarding artwork at our Windsor Street site alongside the local artist, Jack Haslam who created the piece. Local councillors also attended the event.
Jack is a promising neurodiverse artist whose work features in many of The Islington Learning Disability Partnership Campaigns. Jack has won many prizes for his artwork in The Mall Gallery London and the RWS Bankside Gallery. He has been nominated for Wildlife Artist of the Year several times as well as many other awards.
Jack’s inspiration for the piece came from flowers to convey a sense of independence, freedom and safety which is the force behind the Windsor Street scheme, to provide those with learning disabilities, the facilities to live in supported residential accommodation where they can develop independence and life skills.
The artwork will remain on the hoarding of the site until the project is complete and the aim is to have the artwork in the building once all works have been completed for all residents, staff and visitors to see.
