MOVE: Together – Ongoing project
A joint project from the South London Gallery and Blue Elephant Theatre, it explores how performance and visual art can link together, cross-over and inspire new ways of working. Both venues are located next to estates providing the inspiration, context and sites for outdoor performances and filming. They also give young people from different estates the opportunity to meet, visit and work together throughout the year.
Filmmaker Ed Webb-Ingall and dance and performance artists will work with young people during the school holidays leading to film screenings of their work and an event at the end of the project in March 2012.
Street Training with Lottie Child and South London Gallery
Street Training is a two-year project led by artist Lottie Child with young people living on Sceaux Gardens and Southampton Way housing estates. Lottie Child leads training workshops to explore, amongst other things, the differences between creative and anti-social behaviour. Participants go on to train professionals in how to distinguish between these behaviours and work closely with the local safer neighbourhood police. The project is funded by the Joint Security Initiative run by Southwark Council.

Immature Exhibition at South London Gallery with Young People’s group Art Assassins
In March 2011 the young people’s forum at the South London Gallery, the Art Assassins, devised an exhibition of film and video art that looked at ideas of immaturity. I worked with the group on all aspects of the show. One of the films we made together went on to show at the Quad gallery in Derbyshire HAHA Road exhibition.
