Join us for this talk at Walker Art Gallery as part of John Moores Painting Prize 2023 to explore the themes surrounding the shortlisted painting 'Social Murder: Grenfell In Three Parts', led by speakers Nicholas Baldion (Artist) and Lee Oliffe (Grenfell Community Campaigner). 

Six years after the Grenfell fire, a mountain of evidence in some 200,000 documents has been uncovered by the inquiry. However, to date, no one has faced criminal prosecution. Only 7% of homes identified with serious health and safety defects have been made safe and not a single recommendation from phase one of the inquiry has been implemented by government.

Join us in this public meeting, a discussion that adds to the understanding of what happened at Grenfell, and contributes to the most vital question confronting the movement today: what way forward in the struggle for justice?

Attendees will also have the chance to add their voice to those of the north Kensington Community by writing messages on Baldion's painting 'Social Murder: Grenfell in Three Parts' which will be visible when the triptych is closed.

Visitors attending this talk will need to purchase a ticket to the exhibition to attend, however this talk will operate on a drop-in basis.
