New arts exhibition celebrating older people opens at Westfield London
A new art installation celebrating older people in H&F has been unveiled at Westfield London.
Hammersmith & Fulham Council and Westfield London have teamed up with local charities Hammersmith United Charities, the Masbro Centre, the Lido Foundation and Fulham Good Neighbours to give a snapshot into the lively world of older residents and local charities.

“We want to work with the whole community to make H&F the best place to grow older,” said Cllr Ben Coleman, H&F Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care.
“This exhibition gives a great insight into the vibrancy of our older residents’ lives and the fun offered by local charities.
“It also raises awareness of the range of services in the borough to combat loneliness, poverty and poor health in H&F. Many thanks to Westfield for putting it on.”
“We’re delighted to be hosting this exhibition in partnership with H&F Council to bring to life the work of local charities through art”, added Myf Ryan, CMO Europe and Group Director of Brand and Strategic Marketing for Unibail Rodamco-Westﬁeld.
“It’s just one of the many great examples of community spirit that we celebrate at Westfield London. We’re consistently looking for ways to be a hub and work with the local communities, partners and charities to encourage togetherness.”
The exhibition will be on show until February 2020.
Best place to grow older
Hammersmith & Fulham is the only council in the country not to charge residents for home care and it only charges £2 for meals on wheels. Find out more about this and other assistance at home support we offer.
This is the latest in H&F Council’s series of installations with Westfield London at Europe’s largest shopping centre as a result of the council’s Arts Strategy (pdf 627KB).
The previous one showcased the emerging biotech hub in the borough which included Open Cell, one of London’s most affordable biotech spaces, in Shepherds Bush.
