About Harlesden Gallery - winkletroughton

Harlesden Gallery creator and coordinator Gabriel Parfitt tells us about this online initiative.

Harlesden is a vibrant melting pot of people, cultures and ideas, an ideal place - you would think - for an arts and cultural space; a hub of creativity to bring together and showcase a diversity of talent for the benefit of emerging and established artists as well as the local community, bringing visitors to a diverse, exciting and creative little pocket of north London. But sadly such a place is lacking, even though in the surrounding area there are several emerging galleries, showing that there is a need and a desire in the locality.

About Harlesden Gallery - james photo.About Harlesden Gallery - gabriel parfittHarlesden gallery was borne out of a project called the Harlesden Town Charter, compiled by local residents as a means to deliver regeneration of the area with funding from various sources. The charter identifies the absence of cultural space. So, as there is no 'actual' gallery, we've created a virtual one instead, resulting in the recruitment of a group of talented artists that wish to promote Harlesden and the NW10 area.
About Harlesden Gallery - winkletroughton
About Harlesden Gallery - lorenzo belenguerHarlesden Gallery represents a 50/50 mix of artists, half from NW10 and the other half from elsewhere, creating a fascinating network of talented individuals, and providing a comprehensive artist resource, using the combined knowledge, links and contacts of those featured to promote the group under the 'Harlesden Gallery' banner.

Our aim is to exhibit all over the London area and beyond, creating a commercially successful art group whilst also being a  great benefit for the Harlesden locality and community by creating an interest and awareness of the area and to hopefully secure the funding for a cultural space that Harlesden so badly needs and deserves.
