For Walls with Tongues

‘For Walls With Tongues’ (FWWT) is an oral history of the mural movement in the United Kingdom charting the lives and experiences of some of the muralists active in the period 1966 to 1985 created from  interviews with thirty British muralists working around the country, recorded between November 2017 and September 2018.

We have also included studies of five muralists who we could not interview. We are wonderfully fortunate to be able to include an essay by Professor Bill Rolson on the external murals of Northern Ireland. We have produced For Walls With Tongues as a book and website – which allows us to say and show more.

A photographic exhibition of the muralists’ work will be displayed at the University of Greenwich throughout May 2019 and will be available to tour afterwards. In addition the artists’ full interviews will be available in the recordings collection of The British Library …’

Ken White is one of the artists featured in For Walls with Tongues.
