Bread Collective typographic mural in Hackney Wick

Bread Collective's beautiful 100 metre mural, The Walls Have Ears, is up in Hackney Wick in east London, where it lines one of the routes to the Olympic Park.

The design features words and phrases suggested by the local community through a series of workshops with local schoolchildren and views and stories gathered from other local residents. The project was funded by the London Legacy Development Corporation.
