The East End of Islam is a black and white photographic exploration of the Muslim community in Tower Hamlets and their relationship with the East London Mosque. The mosque’s expansive building programme and incorporation of the London Muslim Centre qualifies it as being the largest capacity purpose built mosque in Europe. This exhibition is the culmination of a ten year period from 1997 – 2007, during which time photographer Rehan Jamil was granted unprecedented access to the Mosque and given free reign by the Muslim community to capture a number of revealing snapshots of everyday life, both at home and at prayer.

The Random Project 2012 showcases a growing collection of postcards which are created by everybody. These celebrate the spirit of London 2012 and enable us to visually document the shared cultural experience as the year unfolds – we will all become the artists-in-residence for a historic year. We are inviting EVERYONE to take part in this project; from artists to school children to athletes. Each postcard is designed in response to a randomly assigned word relating to either 2012, London or the Olympics. The Random Project 2012 is a not-for-profit project initiated and organised by graphic designer Sarah Hyndman.
