About me

Barkingside Art Club was established by Eliyah Qureshi with the sole purpose of serving the community and bringing people together. The London Borough of Redbridge required an artistic voice and as did the children of the Borough. Against this backdrop, Barkingside Art Club was established and offered a space of creative natural calm, where creatives of all ages and abilities could come together to act freely among like-minded people. Our club operates from the heart of Ilford, based on Barkingside High Street at Fullwell Cross Library. We offer workshops for children and adults alike - there is something to find for everyone. On a weekly basis we host workshops for adults and creative’s who crave a social or therapeutic retreat. Every week, an hour is dedicated to parents who raise children with Special Education Needs (SEN) and learning disabilities, delivering a clear message of inclusivity that we hope other businesses of the Borough will pay attention to. Over the past year, we have seen our community grow tenfold. Parents have found a safe space for their children to express themselves and work, developing their emotional intelligence and artistic understanding. Artists’ have found platforms through our recognised exhibitions’ and local business’s have learned to manage their stress better, therefore, improving their working performance through our workshops. We also get local business’s involved as sponsors, helping us deliver our programme to a broader audience which enables art activities to reach the wider community of Redbridge.
