Wom Collective Murals at the Lighthouse in Stratford

The WOM Collective have created a series of new murals to hoardings around the Lighthouse and Gardens in Stratford. A community hub and garden at the heart of one of London’s most vibrant areas. It’s a venue that you don’t quite expect when you stumble upon it.

Described as a community empowerment space. It’s an area that sits amongst tower blocks close to the Stratford International Train station. Formerly just waste ground it will one day be part of a wider re-development. However until that time, the gardens and the community space of the Lighthouse are there for the local community.

Community Space

Owned by Hadley Property, they work with community organisers to create planting beds and to create a space for creatives. First started last year, it’s a venture that is starting to mature. It’s a space very similar to what used to be the Nomadic Community Gardens near Brick Lane. Not surprising as James Wheale one of the founders of those gardens is also the curator at the Lighthouse.

Adding to the creative vibe of the place, the WOM collective have added their latest set of murals. Running alongside the hoardings leading up the entrance of the space. Six of the collective added their own pieces. Entering the gardens and looking around the rest of the hoardings other older works can also be seen.

The WOM Collective murals can be seen on the hoardings of the Lighthouse Gardens on International Way in Stratford. The pieces were painted in July 2023 with further works added by Shauna Blanchfield and 7th Pencil a few weeks after.
