a few things to check out

Will, from over at Kings Cross Environment, has directed me to a community art project happening on Caledonian Rd:

'While controversy rages about some young people destroying the Bemerton Estate London N1, other young people have taken up the challenge, in a very tough climate, of reversing the negative connotation of the label “Hoodies.” Young people at the CYP ArtFlat have been working on sculpture which demonstrates their activities and interests.

The aim of the work is to challenge the Hoodie stereotype and to show that it is possible for a young person to wear a hood and still aspire to succeed, find their voice, and want to be taken seriously.'

and continues thru 27July 2007, Mon- Fri 10am-5pm
see for more details.

and then, of course there is the big re-opening of the Wellcome Collection:

"Something new will happen in Wellcome Collection every week from 21 June. Events vary from intimate discussions about issues such as organ donation, to provocative debates about religion and medicine and live shows from leading British performance artists.

Most events are free and take place in our dedicated events space, the Forum, on the first floor. Look out for occasional large-scale thematic events that make the most of the whole building."

I'm hoping to check out both of these later this week, but I encourage you guys to get along too!
