Niki Gibbs, Community Plan for Holloway Board Member representing Reclaim Holloway, helping to install banners on the hoardings outside of Holloway Prison.
Work from Islington Museum’s Echoes of Holloway Prison project and artwork from artist Erika Flowers is now being displayed on the hoardings at Holloway Prison.
Echoes of Holloway Prison is a National Lottery Heritage Fund-funded project run by Islington Museum and tells the story of the prison through the voices of those who lived and worked there. To learn more about Echoes of Holloway Prison, visit the project website here.
Artist Erika Flowers’ Women’s Building board game artwork is also being displayed on the hoardings. The Women’s Building board game is based on the 1900’s Suffaragettes game ‘Pank-a-Squith’ and is inspired by life at the prison and the future Women’s Building. To learn more and view the artwork online please visit Erika’s website here.
Please be mindful of the Government’s current Stay at Home Guidance if you would like to view the hoardings in person. Visiting the hoardings could form a great part of your daily walk or exercise.
