Virtual Culture is a programme of arts and culture projects created by Waltham Forest Council and led by local artists and arts organisations that has taken place during lockdown.
Lockdown kites made by residents have flown free across our skies and local performers have populated the airwaves with exciting new creations. Films made by Waltham Forest kids and adults will be screened, and later in the summer, plays created in lockdown will become open-air theatre.
Building on the success of being the Mayor’s first London Borough of Culture in 2019, Waltham Forest’s Culture programme will start to bring what was created virtually to festivals, open spaces and the high street celebrating everything we have been making and creating together during lockdown.
Two projects commissioned as part of the Virtual Culture season will be part of the Leytonstone Loves Film programme. Learn more about Pell Ensemble and Mira Loew's work Dwell.in.g and Dawinder Bansal's project, We Found Love in the 80's, below.
