Challenging stereotypes and opening minds the Inside out festival will transform two care homes in the borough into exciting new art venues.
A celebration of creativity and co-creation residents, professional artists and nearby makers will come together to develop a programme of large scale art installations. Residents will pair with local younger neighbours. Creating more than art, Inside Out Festival will form friendships and create relationships that transcend generations.
Inside out festival will take place on Sunday 10 November and Sunday 24 November.
Sunday 10 November, 3pm to 5pm
George Mason Lodge Care Home, Leytonstone, E11 1BS
