This exhibition showcased the work inspired by London Transport Museum’s restoration of Metropolitan Railway Jubilee carriage No. 353. The restoration was part of the Museum’s celebration of the 150th anniversary of the London Underground in 2013.
The carriage was used as a starting point for a series of creative learning programmes known collectively as Project 353. Participants took a personal journey, exploring the way in which heritage and history relates to their lives now and in the future.
The exhibition included artwork created by groups from Action Acton, ActionSpace, Acton High School, Affinity Sutton, Anstee Bridge, Church Street Library, National Autistic Society and the Portman Early Childhood Centre. ActionSpace artists that exhibited were: Declan Leslie, Jade Bhundia, Alex Andreev and students from the Leighton Project.
