North Woolwich Arch

Janette Parris

Janette began her Arch comic series bringing art and life together in Archway and worked with us again to create a North Woolwich edition. She was resident at Cafe Roz during July collecting residents’ thoughts about their lives and in 1 to 2 Dry Cleaners at the North Woolwich Arts Festival inviting residents to draw each other. The printed artwork was distributed to every household in North Woolwich, is available at North Woolwich Library, and is available to read online for audiences beyond. 

Sitting down with a cup of tea is a good way to talk to people. Janette Parris

Janette was commissioned as part of Tidal Twirlings in summer 2016, supported by London Borough of Newham and Arts Council England.
