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 meant that the Hackney Citizen was unable to print a monthly newspaper for three months.

We're grateful that we have since been able to resume printing. This would not have been possible without the generosity of our readers, whose donations kept the paper from disappearing completely at a distressing time for residents.

A huge thank you to everyone who gave their time and money to support us through the lockdown, and to those who continue to do so as we slowly recover from the dramatic fall in advertising revenues, on top of the existing challenges threatening the future of local journalism.

A one-off donation or a regular contribution from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the newspaper in print and the website running in the coming months and years.

Find out how you can donate.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe.
