I was commissioned to art direct and curate the Sideshow space alongside a string of exhibitions for the members of Blackhorse Workshop in partnership with the U + I. Transforming an old bus depot in E17, into an events and workshop meanwhile space. Inviting the public to engage with the work and understand the movements the artist makes and why it matters. Not only was this a worthy platform for local creatives, but a refuge for residents and visitors to connect with the area and its heritage. I worked closely with each member, collaborating on a concept, advising and consulting on the works interaction with its key audiences, through to managing each build and de-installation. Whilst keeping the values, identity and interest of the artists at the forefront.
A New Direction | Create Jobs
I was commissioned by Create Jobs to mentor young creatives about the process of designing a set through to completion. A 3 week programme where the young creatives worked on a live brief for the Blackhorse Workshop’s presence at Walthamstow Garden Party. Producing a journey around the space of the makers and ending at a Photo Booth. Where the public were invited to bring their makes and get papped with their new body extensions.
