First Words in Dalston

First Words in Dalston invites neighbours of Dalston CLR James Library to participate in and enjoy an art installation in Dalston Square, London.

The art is made from the first sentences of publications in the library, chosen by the people who live and work in the area. What better way to connect the Library with the public and the public with the Library?

We hope that you will take part.

We are crowdfunding on Spacehive to raise funds for our Phase 3 programme of events starting this summer.

Spacehive is a funding platform for ideas that bring local places to life and we are hoping that the Mayor of London will support our initiative.

Please like and pledge £2 (the price of a library book fine) to the First Words in Dalston Spacehive crowdfunder.

We need at least 50 people to support us to attract the Mayor of London’s attention.
