Bread - a creative collective in London - recently secured funding from the London Legacy Development Corporation to paint a 100-metre long mural about Hackney Wick, leading to the Olympic Park in east London, to improve an unloved street.
The six-month project involved various workshops, interviews, research and a blog-style website and social media to engage the local community. The project has received positive feedback from locals and visitors alike, as well as gaining national press coverage on the BBC and the Guardian newspaper.
