Artists

We regularly work with artists at varying stages of their careers and from a range of backgrounds including performance, circus, live art, photography, film, animation, digital arts, installation, written and spoken word, and music.

Artists can create spaces that are playful, interactive and inclusive of different people, offering new and unusual ways of looking at a problem, interpreting an issue and beginning a discussion. 

Many of our collaborations with artists span many years and multiple projects. Short profiles of artists who have collaborated with us on multiple projects can be found below.

Pippa is a creative practitioner who has worked with us since 2007 on projects including the Amazing Archive, Anyhow Anywhere and schools outreach work with Merchants Academy, Bridge Learning Campus and Victoria Park Primary. Pippa’s work is centered on the belief that everyone has a story to tell and that the telling of these stories has an intrinsic value both to the teller and their community. She combines digital storytelling, animation, sculpture, photography, creative writing and oral history to research and record everyday stories that might otherwise be overlooked or forgotten. Pippa is currently running ‘Mother in the Mother’, a creative exploration of maternal lineage, with the support of KWMC. In 2019 she published a book of stories gathered during the project.
