A community project in Silvertown and North Woolwich with UEL that documented oral histories in the area, predominantly around the local pubs and their rapid demise. The group’s work also attempted to help preserve memories of the Tate Institute, which was a social club for many years and is now home to the arts centre – Craftory.
Community Spaces in Ilford
Another project with UEL documenting some of the community spaces available in Ilford, Essex. I visited all the buildings, did some brief sketches and then worked mostly in watercolour and digitally.
Several of the buildings also house local charities and the fact that they can be hired out helps to ensure they can continue their work.
