Marlene Neumann’s Buckaroo Sterilization Project has received some excellent news! Local vets and the East London SPCA will assist with the sterilization project and as a result, 28 dogs are being sterilized every month. This will have a massive knock on effect in the area and improve the health and well-being of the dogs that are sterilized.
Donations of food, blankets, kennels (or materials to build kennels), water bowls, leads and collars can be donated at Marlene’s Centre 8 Kent Road, Vincent. Contributions to the Buckaroo fund can be made online or by contacting Marlene directly at email@example.com or at 083 321 3391. To stay up to date with the Buckaroo Project, like Marlene’s Facebook Page.
It’s that time of year again! The Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light was open as part of the Pam Golding Gardens of East London Show. There were craft and food stalls at the Centre and Buckaroo himself made an appearance. Over 15k was raised for the charity, which will go towards the sterilisation drive.
The Marlene Neumann Centre for Photography and Light is possibly one of the most calming things to do in East London. The beautiful garden is set under the a giant wild fig tree. The garden is currently in full bloom and is under guardianship of Tigger the cat who keeps a watchful eye on the comings and goings around the centre.
The centre features two galleries displaying Marlene’s prolific career in photography. Her Dark Room gallery displays her images that have been developed in the dark room using ‘The Neumann Technique’ which she has developed and perfected in her 30 years of capturing photographs. The Light Room displays Marlene’s Black and White photography, which she is currently producing photographs for. Focusing on landscapes and nature, these images manage to draw people in and ground them in the present.
The centre is the site of many holisitic events on the East London calendar. Iyengar Yoga classes are held in the gallery every Monday and Thursday. The centre becomes a concert venue every once in a while for International acts such as Desert Rose. Marlene herself hosts a Creativity through Photography course twice a year, which welcomes students from across the country to learn how to capture photographs with meaning. The garden is opened up once a year for the Pam Goulding Gardens of East London event once a year.
For more information on any of the events at the centre, please contact Claire, the centre manager at 043 726 1877. The centre can be found at 8 Kent Road, Vincent.
Please remember to rate the centre! The higher ranking it receives, the more people can know about the gallery and the beautiful garden.
