About this event

An exhibition of creative writing and photography.

Inspired by the recent publication of the book Tango Whisky Eight: The Chronicles of a Town called Brentford, this exhibition brings together extracts of creative writing by local people, and photography by members of west-London based photography group Better Pictures. 

Covering themes such as migration, gentrification and life by the Thames, this exhibition offers a range of perspectives on life past and present in this part of the London Borough of Hounslow. 

The exhibition features texts by Aldona Zywicka-Thornton, Annie Coleman, Dave Floyd, Jacquie Foster, Jennie de Protani, and Simon Smith, alongside photography by Beatriz Pullin, Mike Lawton and Paul Franklin.

The texts were created at a series of workshops titled Written Word, Spoken Lyric led by Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu on behalf of the Brentford Local Advisory Group, with funding from the Mayor of London’s Culture Seeds Fund and Arts Council England’s Creative People & Places programme. The exhibition is delivered with the support of the Salisbury Café and the London Borough of Hounslow Library Service as part of the Creative People & Places Hounslow Visual Arts Programme.

The exhibition will be on show at Salisbury Cafe from 26 October 2021 - 23 January 2022 during usual public opening hours.
