Albany English Leaf Is The Perfect Colour For Shadwell Mural

February 19th, 2024

Trapped In Zone One, a community focused creative organisation based in East London. 10L of Albany Smooth Matt Masonry in English Leaf was donated to the project along with sundries.

More about the project:

The new eco awareness mural in Tower Hamlets is part of the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme, in which Trapped Inn Zone One worked with artists Alex Cullen, Nacho Welles, Limma Ali, London Youth and youth people from Mulberry School for Girls on a social action project to raise awareness on what they can do together to make Tower Hamlets an eco-friendly borough in London. 

Getting young people to participate in various skill building activities from engaging in climate theme creative workshops, listening, speaking, teamwork and problem-solving training. This develops confidence and resilience, enabling them to connect with residents in Shadwell and Wapping through a consultation activity of collating ideas. This helped to co-design a youth-led mural on Dellow Street in Shadwell, which was granted permission by the Community Partnership Team at Tower Hamlets Council.   

The underlining message expressed by the residents was to take care of local greenspaces, getting more young people involved in nature theme activities, along with recycling to reduce less waste and impact the environment.

Both of these subject matters were included in the mural design along with the message, ‘Make Change For Future You’ as a call out by the young people for us to make changes for a greener and cleaner Tower Hamlets.

Thank you for supporting our latest community mural project in Tower Hamlets. The Albany English Leaf paint was the ideal colour choice for the mural and the feedback we have received has all been positive!”  Bablu Miah, Head and Founder of Trapped In Zone One.

The finished mural looks amazing! A huge congratulations to everybody involved. You can find out more about the work of Trapped In Zone One here>>
