Get involved with the People of Wembley Park project

The new 8ft hoardings showing the People of Wembley Park can be found next to White Horse Bridge in Wembley Park

Wembley Park has launched a new project called the People of Wembley Park, which highlights the stories of local people. The idea for the project came out of a tweet by a local photographer who captured a portrait of a woman in a fawn coat standing waiting for the tube at Wembley Park station. Instantly drawn to the image, the photographer was contacted and the idea to document the talents and lives of the people of Wembley Park was born.

The aim is to celebrate the everyday lives of people who live in, work at, and visit Wembley Park. From street vendors to artists, entrepreneurs to managers; including people who have been here for generations to those who have arrived more recently.  Since launching in December 2016, the reception has been extremely positive and we are on the lookout for more volunteers to tell their stories.

TAKE PART

If you or someone you know would like to be involved, either as a photographer or interviewee, please get in contact through the Yellow Pavilion, Wembley Park’s community space: yellowpavilion@wembleypark.com
