Veronica Ryan commissioned to create public artwork honoring Hackney’s Windrush Generation

Veronica Ryan has been commissioned by Hackney Council to create a new public artwork celebrating and honouring Hackney’s Windrush Generation, one of the two first permanent public sculptures to do so in the UK.

The artwork will be unveiled on October 1, 2021. The work will serve as a permanent expression of solidarity with the Windrush Generation, a recognition of the hugely significant contribution they have made to life in Hackney and the UK, and will symbolise the ongoing commitment from the borough to provide refuge and welcome to worldwide migrants.
