Shared Viewpoints

Daniel's View is an artist led gallery that supports the aspiration of local creatives. By placing a community of unique artworks and creative visions into a prime location in the heart of Romford Town Centre.

The Gallery is supported by it's host The Mercury Shopping Centre and is voluntarily ran by The NO Collective who curate the schedule of exhibitions.

As the first and only gallery of it's kind in in Romford, the vision of the gallery is to promote creativity and sustain enjoyment of creating and seeing artwork in our everyday lives.

The gallery's install was paid for by The Big Draw in 2019, when The Mercury Shopping Centre won one of the organisation's widening participation prizes allowing the gallery to evolve to what it is today. 

Daniel

The gallery is named after 'Daniel', a much-loved cleaner and member of The Mercury community who sadly lost his battle against cancer in the Autumn of 2019. Daniel enjoyed photography and often documented the viewpoints through various hospital windows over the years he was having treatments. He never let his illness appropriate his joy for life. 

 

The gallery was officially opened by his family in January 2020, with an exhibition by local landscape photographer Barry Jones and a fundraising activity for Cancer research. The naming and opening exhibition was symbolic of the hope and joy that comes from everyday creativity.

Current Exhibition

Faces of Autism - The Sycamore Trust

This show highlights seventeen young people and adults who are on the spectrum, who are regular members of our community.

The idea of the exhibition came from conversation at The Sycamore Trust's steering group who felt that it was important to raise awareness that you cant tell if someone is autistic by the way they look. The exhibtion forms part of the Trust's wider activities for Autism Acceptance Week.
