Dear Resident

 

We would like to inform you that there will be a one-off charitable event being held today starting from 7pm being held at Timber Lodge.  It will involve people sleeping out on the lawn next to the building from 10pm. The organisers and the operators of the café, Change Please, are very aware of the proximity to of this to our residents, so will be looking to ensure that there is no noise disturbance.

 

Here is a link to the event’s website: Sleep Out 2022 – End Youth Homelessness (eyh.org.uk)

 

And these are the key details in relation to the event operation:

 

  • 130 people will be attending, all of whom are aged 18 or over
  • It will start with an indoor presentation, with the provision of food and drinks from 7pm until 10pm
  • The only outside activity will be sleeping, from 10am until 7am; and this is to be patrolled by the event’s team and security staff to ensure that noise is kept to an absolute minimum
  • It is proposed that the toilet will be accessible overnight for participants, and only from the side door next to the play area so that nobody can access the rest of the building. This will be manned throughout the night

 

Gagan Prabhakar, Operations Manager at Change Please, is the main contact from Timber Lodge; he can be contacted on 0772 006 9478. Gagan will be onsite throughout if there are any issues or complaints.

The World Reimagined Globes

 

Dear Resident

You may already have seen the five World Reimagined Globes that have been placed at the Park since August.  From today, The World Reimagined is bringing together over 40 globes from its successful London art trails to the Park for two weeks through to the 17th November.

The World Reimagined is a ground-breaking, vibrant art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans and its impact on all of us so that we can make racial justice a reality, together.   The globes explore black history with themes ranging from Mother Africa to Still We Rise and Expanding Soul with an enormous range of interpretations and creative styles by globally renowned artists including Vashti Harrison, Phoebe Boswell and The World Reimagined’s Founding Artist Yinka Shonibare CBE. 

For the next two and half weeks only, the globes will be on display across Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park so you can discover this unique body of work for the first time in one place.  The sculptures are an invitation for everyone from families, friends and local communities to talk together about how they understand their history; how the past—particularly the UK’s relationship with the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans—shapes the future; and how to act for social change to make racial justice a reality.  As people visit the globes, they will also be able to dive into an online collection of short, accessible stories that bring The World Reimagined’s Journey of Discovery themes – which explore the past, present and future – to life.

Supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this unique collection features contributions from historians, museums and heritage organisations, including Professor Kehinde Andrews, the British Library and Know Your Caribbean. Parents can also download free activity packs for children, which draw on The World Reimagined’s work with 200+ schools across the country.
