Put yourself on the Queen’s Park map!

Queen’s Park Library is currently hosting an exhibition: ‘The Cultural Heritage of North Paddington’. The exhibition is the result of a Lottery-funded collaboration between Steve Shaw of Paddington Arts, Queen’s Park Primary School and the London Print Studio, and explores the diversity of the area, which is home to more than 100 nationalities, through culture, architecture and food. 

In the project 28 children from Queen’s Park Primary School were asked to share their family history through items of food or objects from their culture, and a selection of them explain the object or food they have chosen and what significance it has for them.

The exhibition runs until Saturday 27 July.
