Exhibition: Citizens of Hounslow

Event Details

Nominated by fellow community members, the portraits show how people come together, inspire each other, and support their friends, neighbours and the wider community.

On 24th March 2021, marking one year from the first UK lockdown due to the COVID 19 pandemic, our heroes were invited to sit for their portraits via Zoom and Facebook live. Drawn in a fun, vibrant style by illustrator Aleesha Nandhra, these digital portraits show the vast range of ways people can help each other.

Knitting, litter picking, breathing exercises, dance and volunteering were just some of the ways in which our heroes supported the well-being of others, by boosting access to activities and knowledge in their community.

The portraits were printed as postcards (and distributed to people across Hounslow), and will be exhibited in public spaces across the borough throughout 2022 in a celebration of the Citizens of Hounslow!
