An artist who is creating artwork spanning the trackside wall of the Elizabeth Line is appealing for stories from Newham’s people.
Sonia Boyce is creating a piece of art which will run alongside the track, and is looking for those who live or work in Custom House, Silvertown and North Woolwich to share their stories of living in the area.
Sonia grew up in Canning Town, studied in Plaistow and went on to teach at the University of East London.
She’s been running workshops since October with young people from the Shipman Youth Centre, Fight for Peace and ASTA Community Hub, training them up to record interviews which will contribute to the piece.
The final design will be unveiled in Summer and installed before the Elizabeth line opens in December.
Stories can come in the form of messages, audio recordings, pictures or videos and should be submitted here. The deadline is March 31.
