Pio Abad and the Kilburn High Road – submissions wanted

Thursday, 13 August 2020

Do you have a connection to the Kilburn High Road?
What ornament occupies a pride of place in your home?
What lives have these ornaments lived?
What stories do these ornaments tell?

As part of his upcoming mural commission as part of the Brent Biennale, leading British-Filipino artist Pio Abad is asking local residents to donate images and the stories of ornaments that have significance to their lives. Do you have an object in your home you would be willing to photograph as inspiration for the mural Abad is painting in September 2020 on the Kilburn High Road? Does it have a poignant meaning relating to family, history, place or memories that you are happy to share?

If you do and would like to participate, we would love to hear from you! For either more information on the project or to send an image of an object please email caitlin@createlondon.org or send us a direct message on Instagram.
