Designed by the award-winning architecture studio Liddicoat & Goldhill, Elephant West occupies a repurposed petrol station adjacent to the BBC’s former headquarters on Wood Lane. We aim to establish a new model for cultural spaces; neither publicly funded nor a commercial gallery, we support and promote emerging creative practice and build a community of the culturally interested around our programme. The space includes a café-bar, Fuel, and a small shop offering limited-edition prints, books, magazines and associated products. Elephant West programme centres on the Elephant Commissions, projects by emerging visual artists selected and curated by Becca Pelly-Fry, Head Curator. Alongside the central programme, the space plays host to a wide range of events such as film screenings, dance performances, panel discussions, inspirational talks, yoga classes and DJ nights.
West London Zine is a Photojournalism Hub ambitious programme that provides practical opportunities and media experience and training for youths (16+).
The project enables participants, under the guidance of a media professional facilitator, to work on their own journalistic and photo stories which are then published to produce an online zine covering local news.
The project provides the invaluable opportunity to publish own work, generate content for a working Portfolio and receive practical guidance and mentorship. The outcome will leave the participants with a body of published work that can assist them in accessing further education and/or work placements.
The project will equip the participants with:
