WHAT DOES ‘REAL ESTATE’ MEAN TO YOU? HOW DO WE IDENTIFY OURSELVES IN PLACES & SPACES?

::

The Real Estate Project is creative project that will investigate Peabody estates, creatively mapping the experiences of housing association residents and the wider community.

Working to a project brief with top draw practising artists from a range of backgrounds (spoken word / film / photography / film & sound), workshop participants will explore memories, local surroundings and social relationships to discover how a sense of ‘place’ helps to inform our identities and community.

The project will culminate in an exhibition that combines the collaborative work of the participants and the artists.

Please note: Each workshop programme is ONE WEEK long and are based in various London locations (see below for details). Places are limited. Please register per class.

Open to under 25’s.
