Special BOLD issue announced

By James Renoux-Wood - Thu 7 July 2016, 6:08 pm

The seventh edition of BOLD regeneration magazine will focus on arts and culture in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

The retrospective issue will look back at articles in previous magazines and explain how the borough has become an arts hub through initiatives such as The Ice House Quarter, which provides affordable studio space for creative endeavours on the River Roding.

It will also look at how funding from the mayor’s office is helping the council realise its vision for Barking and Dagenham to become an artist’s enterprise zone.

A feature on Creative Barking and Dagenham will explore how the borough’s ‘cultural connectors’ are changing perceptions of the east London area. The magazine will also include information about TV programmes and films shot in the borough, summer festivals and new workspaces at Ice House Court. 

The seventh issue of BOLD will be published in the autumn 2016.
