Green Street Banners

Green Street Banners is a textiles project taking place in the Green Street Neighbourhood of Newham. We are running a series of participatory workshops with five community groups, producing a set of 16 textiles banners that have been designed by lead artist, Sarah Pimenta, that will be paraded along Green Street on 31st August 2015, after which they will be installed on the frontage at Queens Market.
