“OPEN Dalston are joining forces with the  London Mural Preservation Society to launch a campaign to restore and protect the iconic Hackney Peace Carnival Mural and to organise a series of events which celebrate its history and spirit. Reclaim The Mural is a year-long project by art collective The Work in Progress at the Whitechapel Art Gallery and this Sunday their ‘Take Us To Your Mural’ series of talks will reach Dalston and help launch our campaign. The event will start with an overview of the project by artists from the collective before Marie Murray from OPEN Dalston gives a brief introduction to the Peace Mural.  Then Ruth Miller from the London Mural Preservation Society will talk about the background to the mural before we move to the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden where over tea and coffee there will be an opportunity to ask more questions and to get involved with the mural campaign. So if you would like to know more about the history of this much loved Dalston landmark and get involved in the restoration campaign please come along on Sunday. No need to book just turn up at the mural at 3pm. Even if it rains the event will go ahead in the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden.
