On Wednesday 2 March 2022 we were excited to see the launch of the ‘A Place to Call Home’ art exhibition which our students have been working on with local school children.
Putney High School has been leading the A Place to Call Home project in Putney and Roehampton – part of a new collaborative partnership between Wandsworth’s state and independent schools.
Pupils from Putney’s Years 5 , 7 and 12 have been working with pupils from Oasis Primary school to produce an artwork consisting of panels that form a larger installation. The aim very much to encourage a sense of being part of the local community in response to the isolation felt during the pandemic.
We were delighted that the Mayor of Wandsworth could join us to open the exhibition, which is open to the general public, as well as local artist, Alexander Mourant who has been leading the project working with Wandsworth Council’s children’s services and arts teams, and more than 2,000 students from 51 local schools.
The ‘A Place to Call Home’ exhibition is free to visit and will be open to the public from Friday 4 – Friday 25 March, in Unit 61 of Southside Shopping Centre, Wandsworth (between Paperchase and Deichmann).
