Community Events and Projects 2022

Historic library exhibitions

From June to August, exhibitions took place in all 11 libraries in the borough, as well as online, so that every resident, whatever their age and wherever they lived, had the opportunity to find out more about Hounslow’s rich heritage. Alongside exhibitions showcasing the history of the area, visitors had the opportunity to contribute to our archive to capture how the borough looks now, in exciting new ways.

Community grant-funded events and activities

Hounslow has a rich culture of communities right across our borough and we wanted all our residents and communities to be a key part of the Summer of Culture programme for 2022. We awarded 37 successful applications from a variety of organisations and individuals delivering events and activities at the heart of our communities.

Community events

We saw a host of activity taking place in the borough, delivered by new and established community groups – the gems in our crown, from historic tours to outdoor festivals; we were delighted to shine a light on these local opportunities to take part.
