Wood Street Walls, a Waltham Forest art collective which is installing murals throughout the borough, is close to reaching its crowdfunding goal to create studio spaces for artists in the borough.

The organisation is less than £1,500 away from its target of £38,000 after securing £18,000 from the mayor of London’s High Street Fund scheme. 

Established a year ago, with the aim to make art accessible for residents and visitors to Waltham Forest, Wood Street Walls has recently worked with the council to erect a mural on the newly pedestrianised West Avenue Bridge. 

Wood Street Walls member, Mark Clack, said: “The team launched their crowdfunding campaign to establish an affordable, creative hub in Wood Street. Popularity and interest is evident with the team securing over £20,000 in donations from residents and businesses, while the list of artists wanting to move is ever growing.”
