Invitation to WALL Exhibition!

You are invited to the opening event of the WALL Project !

An exhibition by Eltham Arts

 A multi media project involving the Eltham Community

Is a WALL a barrier? A connector? The exhibition is the voice and the vision of our community.

The exhibition reflects the different projects that have come together over the last year. It has caught the imagination of the whole community. People of all ages have created bricks using various media, photographic displays, artworks in glass and resin, a mosaic and a fabric hanging. The wonderful Community Wall will be built in the gallery with bricks created by individuals and groups reflecting what our local community has to say. The exhibition explores what WALLS mean to us in our lives.

The opening event takes place:

on Saturday 22nd September 2018
at The SE9 Container Gallery, St Thomas More School, Footscray Rd, Eltham SE9 2SU
from 11am to 3pm
There will be refreshments!

Eltham Music Festival

RockChoir-WideShot-Crowd

Eltham locals and visitors have just enjoyed another great musical July! In the heart of Eltham High Street, at the newly redeveloped Passey Place, audiences turned up for the many talented musical acts making the most of this new community outdoor space.

Each Saturday, on 1, 8 and 15 July, saw local musicians, singers, choirs and dancers come together to entertain in this Royal Greenwich and Eltham Arts Music Festival, part of the Royal Greenwich Festivals season.Progr-Slanted-2017

Here are just some of the performers – how many of these fabulous acts  did you see?

This second Eltham Arts CD came out of the 2016 Eltham Arts Winter Festival where the challenge was laid down to write a song on a culinary theme. The result was a fantastic collection of songs now gathered together on this fun and thoughtful CD.
