Children from Primary and Secondary schools in the Brentford and Isleworth have produced 11 pieces of digital art which is now being installed in the window spaces of the now derelict building opposite Somerfields on Brentford High Street.

The art work has been inspired by the history and culture of Brentford and Isleworth. The children have been supported by Janet McNamara, our local historian.

In the spirit of community, Allsignsgroup, a local printing firm, will be printing and installing the work with the help of The Watermans Arts Centre. Thanks must also go to Ballymore and Isleworth Extended Schools who have contributed space and funds to support this project.
