St Mary's, Islington - Soul in the City Project
70 children and adults created two mosaics now mounted on an outside wall of the St Mary's Community Centre and inside The Crypt at St.Mary's Church, Upper Street, Islington. The two days of workshops were free and open to all, part of the Soul in the City Festival that saw 2,500 free cups of tea, coffee or squash served, 2,500 free slices of cake eaten and 1050 seats were filled to enjoy free theatre, opera, hiphop and an "Upper Street's Got Talent2 show. The green behind the church was transformed into a great "Family Fun" afternoon and it was a pleasure to be part of such a wealth of generosity, fun and friendliness.
"The mosaic was magnificent. Thanks so much."
Reverend Martine Oborne
