Internationally acclaimed artists, Neil Musson and Jono Retallick (M+R), are inviting everyone with ties to Thamesmead to share their personal stories, memories and remarkable tales of the area, or to respond creatively to the stories others have shared.

Stories and responses will become part of a 25m high sculptural hot air balloon ‘Fields of EveryWhen’ celebrating the social and cultural history of the community. Find out more here.
