Brian Guest, General Secretary of S.P.A.R
Join Brian Guest, General Secretary of S.P.A.R, Society for the Preservation of Admirable Rubble for a special walking AGM (Annual General Meeting) that will take in areas of Thamesmead where rubble is prevalent. There will be encounters with past, present and future rubble sites in the area.
Society for the Preservation of Admirable Rubble (S.P.A.R) is dedicated to the preservation of rubble in all its varied forms. S.P.A.R campaigns to keep rubble created if businesses and homes are demolished within any development that replaces it, as a conscience of its passing.

Thamesmead Texas is a nomadic artist run initiative based in Thamesmead, South-East London. Originally operating from a living room in one of 40 disused flats rented by artists from Peabody via the Bow Arts Trust, we set up to bring together the new community of Bow Arts Trust artists, who moved to Thamesmead in 2018. Anchored by an art bar, we are led by the necessity to be social and organise public exhibitions and events. Open every Saturday, 12-6pm. Or by appointment ([email protected]).
