1B Window Gallery is a new community led initiative, working with St James Big Local community action group and Waltham Forest Council's Regeneration Team to create a gallery in the former disused shopfront of a sub-station at 1B Coppermill Lane. See here for our latest exhibition.
1B Window Gallery is curated by Invisible Numbers:
Hannah Ford at Hannah Ford
Rebecca Booker at www.face-invader.co.uk
Joana Niemeyer at www.studio-april.com
The 2019 programme included:

Dark Yellow Dot Curatorial takeover (artist: Joke Amusan)
Hewing Wittare Curatorial takeover (artists:
Rod Arthur/The Ravensgate, Ramsgate
Artwork in the gallery can be viewed through the windows every day, with the aim to improve a sense of well-being for visitors and passers-by. As a gallery, it provides a destination and point of interest to the gateway to the Walthamstow Wetlands.
Invisible Numbers programme for 2019 included a podcast, a zine, talks and a programme of exhibitions and guest curatorial invitations to widen the reach and inclusiveness.
Thanks to all who came together to make the Window Gallery happen including E17 Art Trail, The Mill Community Hub, St James Big Local, Waltham Forest Council, Stow Brothers, local artists and everyone in the neighbourhood.
