It’s going to be more important than ever this year to make sure you’re protected against seasonal flu.

The Brent Biennial is now underway, with over 20 brand new artworks by artists such as Imran Qureshi, Dawn Mellor and Brian Griffiths. The library is hosting Brian Griffiths’ SELF – CONSCIOUS, which you can view every weekend between now and 13 December.
Brent have produced a leaflet and map to help you navigate the artworks. They will shortly be announcing walking tours – so check out the calendar for further details on the Brent 2020 site here: https://brent2020.co.uk/whats-happening/programmes/brent-biennial/
You can also download the brochure there.
In case you have missed it, or are not on the mailing list, here’s Brent’s latest Covid-19 advice and guidance.
The exhibition has opened. Here’s a little glimpse of what it looks like.
Viewings every Saturday and Sunday, 1200-1600, until 13 December.
We’re aiming to try and be open for the launch of the Museum of all Brent Life on 16 May. There will be a launch event with our Brent 2020 artist, and no doubt there will be a few choice refreshments too. It’s free. Do drop in.
We’re painting the library on Saturday 1 February, starting at 1000. We’re looking for anyone who’d like to help to get in touch.
If you can bring your own materials, fantastic – but some will be provided. Just wear comfortable old clothes.
We’ll provide tea, coffee and biscuits, and there will be a few laughs along the way.
To sign up, please send your full name, postcode and mobile number by email to email@example.com,uk and say you want to volunteer for painting duty. If you think you’re ever likely to do a shift in the library when it’s open, please also say so.
We are especially keen to hear from people who have experience of leading teams on physical activities like this – you’ll need humour, tact, patience and a firm demeanour! Please get in touch!
If you can’t paint, but would like to contribute, we have a wish list over at Amazon. Even if you’re not an Amazon fan, you can view the items there and buy from somewhere else, we don’t mind.
