The Real Estate Project Workshops




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.
