Join Alison Jackon on her riverside tour created for Kensington and Chelsea Art Weekend via the Go Jauntly app. Alternatively, step inside her world through KCAW’s initiative ‘Open Doors 360’ is an exciting run of 360 degree interviews with artists living or working in West London. Invited into their creative spaces, we can witness as they discuss their work and inspiration, gaining a rare glimpse into the reality of their lives and practices – and through the incredible 360 technology we can be fully immersed, as if in the room, standing right beside the artist and among their work.
