Oxford House, Postcards from Aldgate East
Adult local residents were led by project leader Graham Barker, photography teacher Natalie Clarke and film company Blueprint Film Foundation on a number of photo walks in Aldgate East to document street life, architecture, cultural landmarks, local residents and workers
Working with our learning team, Youth Arts Participation and Development Manager, Eldora Edward and director of Paddington Arts, Steve Shaw, a group of 12 young people (aged 11-15 years old) created and produced a contemporary dance exploring the themes of identity and migration. The dance, filmed within the beautiful location of Somerset House, is a wonderful modern response to key works from the Out of Chaos centenary exhibition.
SHAK, London Locals
This experimental project began with an intergenerational series of workshops and consultation of around 25 local adults and children. Together, they decided that the project would focus on the participant’s own story, told and documented as a group, through film. Working with filmmaker artist, Nela Milic, the group created a beautiful film, using some of Ben Uri’s key artworks as a backdrop to the participants’ own stories and personal record of London.
