This new and ambitious project led by CPP Hounslow plans to bring together Hounslow’s local artists to send a message that imagination, hope, and kindness are not cancelled, even in difficult times.
‘Future Visions’ will adorn empty shops, displays, existing digital signage, walls, windows, and street furniture with colourful, creative and inspiring visual art for everyone to enjoy.
We are looking for work that fills the town centre with eye-catching, colourful, joyful, bright, bold, and uplifting work that is representative of hope for the future.
Help us realise the vision for a High Street as a space for connecting local creatives with the community, setting up a new type of social interaction, highlighting the positive impact art can have on health and wellbeing, and reinvigorating the high street with art!
Curated by members of the local community with support from CPP Hounslow, we want to give everyone the opportunity to experience the incredible wealth of artistic talent in our local area.

- Bright and bold
