In Aug 2009 I was approached by the council to discuss the possibility of me moving from the studio I have worked in for 10 years, at this point they suggested they would offer help with the move.
In March 2010 with no further discussion the council served me an eviction notice as if i was an illegal squatter. When I contested it they set a court date and are now trying to charge me over £1000 for their legal fees.
I have lived and worked in Haringey for over 30 years, building up a reputation as an international artist. I welcome youngsters to gain experience and have completed several community projects in the local area, leading to large scale public sculptures.
I believe I have been treated unfairly and undervalued as a creative force within the community. Surely the school would benefit from having a local artist nearby?
I believe I have been treated unfairly and undervalued as a creative force within the community and ask for support.
We believe Finn Stone has been unfairly treated by the council.
We believe his studio should remain a creative resource within Haringey, and the council should facilitate this so that future generations can benefit.
The Save Finn Stones Studio petition to Haringey Council was written by Finn Stone and is in the category Arts & Entertainment at GoPetition.
