On now, the Ghosts of Gone Birds exhibition, held at the Rochelle School in Shoreditch. Stop on by to see over 300 pieces of artwork designed to attract attention to the plight of vanishing and already extinct bird species across the world. Sales from the exhibition will raise money for BirdLife International's Preventing Extinction programme. There have been donations from all sorts of luminaries, including Ralph Steadman, Rob Ryan, Peter Blake, Billy Childish and writer Margaret Atwood, who has knitted a piece of artwork.
