Do you or someone you know in Acton need help looking for work? Acton now has a Work Club where you can receive assistance with the following in a friendly and supportive environment:
Check out the must-see 'Riot Here, Riot Now' exhibition at the W3 Gallery on Acton High Street. It's free of charge, and you can buy some of the exclusive and colourful art pieces on show. The exhibition is on until 1 December – make sure you don't miss it!
Are you interested in free training? We're looking for people who would like to participate in the South Acton Heritage project by filming and editing interviews, using a camera to photograph notable sites, learning about oral history and archive research, making their mark in art workshops and developing web design skills.
New art classes will be held at the North Acton Pavilion, Southfields Road, W3 0JF from Wednesday 20 November. We will have experienced artists holding painting classes on Wednesdays from 1pm to 3pm, and life drawing on Saturdays from 1pm to 3pm. Basic art materials will be provided and each class is affordably priced at £5. Don't miss this amazing opportunity!

Latest additions to our 'arts hit the streets' iniative include a brand new tribute to Nelson Mandela (pictured above) and more vibrant art on the South Acton Estate.The street art displays are part of an ambitious project to transform the estate with beautiful and colourful paintings and mosaics by many different artists, all with their own unique styles. The art has had a very positive response from the local residents, who say they brighten up the area, put a smile on people’s faces and give them something interesting to look at.We would like to thank Zabou and Jermaine Mac for these brilliant new pieces!
