Art Stops and High Street Signage Competitions

In 2022, Ealing Council invited local creatives and schools to submit their ideas to temporarily activate and celebrate public spaces across Northolt through a series of art and signage installations. Five local artists and Northolt High School were selected to develop their submissions.

Visions for Northolt are already beginning to deliver, with the successful launch of Art Stops in September 2023. You can read more about the work of our five local artists and collaborators below. Click here to share your thoughts on the Art Stops with us. We'd love to hear from you!
