Carriage 353 is on its way

Project 353 at Church Street Library November 2013As part of the ongoing collaboration between Westminster Libraries’ Bengali Service and London Transport Museum’s Project 353, an exhibition was held at Church Street Library to celebrate and showcase the fantastic artwork which participants have created in recent months.

All the original creative pieces of work were amazingly curated for this exhibition which was extremely inspiring for the participants to come back and see being displayed for the public. The exhibition was only at the library for a very short time, but the works will also feature in a larger display at the London Transport Museum itself in 2014.

In addition, all the pieces have been used as illustrations to create a brand new children’s story book about Carriage 353. The book, entitled ‘The marvellous Adventure of Carriage 353′ has been printed into two different sizes – a giant publication to be used for children’s storytelling sessions at the museum as well as a number of little A5 copies of the glossy books which were presented to the participants along with certificates of achievement.
