All Aboard for Stockwell was a community arts project led by Our Hut and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It focused on the inspiring architecture of Stockwell bus garage and the important part it plays in the transport infrastructure of London. The aims of the project were to raise the profile of the building and to help improve the image of Stockwell both locally and throughout London.
Our Hut developed this project as a great way for the Stockwell community to come together to enjoy a whole range of activities – from school and community group based design projects, volunteer opportunities to work in schools and an oral history project that is archived at the London Transport Museum, a soundscape music project through to architectural bus tours for local residents on a Routemaster buses. All Aboard for Stockwell culminated in an exhibition in 2013 about the bus garage and showcasing the work of participants at the Royal Festival Hall.
Our Hut will continue to run events in connection with the Stockwell Bus Garage such as bus tours so please to check the website or join the Friends of Our Hut for information about forthcoming events. Please contact us for further details.
