A Shoreditch church is hosting a new show of works by some of the area’s less-well known artists.

Put together by the New Hanbury Project, which supports people in rehabilitation, the show of around 30 paintings by locals is open 12-2pm till 27 January.

Most residents and visitors to the Shoreditch area will have some exposure to the issues of homelessness, addiction, mental health problems and long-term unemployment, but the New Hanbury Project (part of Spitalfields Crypt Trust) hopes that the work on display will give a more personal perspective.

New Hanbury Project students will be present to discuss their work.

The coronavirus outbreak sadly means the Hackney Citizen is unable to print a monthly newspaper for the first time in its 12-year history.

At a time when independent and trusted news is more important than ever, this was an incredibly difficult decision to have to make.

Without print advertising, our major source of income, a one-off donation from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the website and social media feeds running through this unprecedented crisis.

When Hackney and the wider world has fought off this virus and we return to some semblance of normality, the print edition will be back.

Thanks in advance for your support, and stay safe.
