Workshops & Learning

Isolated Moments  – Market Garden
Fermynwoods Contemporary Art
During lockdown I have been restricted to walks in South East London, exploring and investigating, and documenting this on @Blak_Outside. The empty streets got me thinking about community and particularly how in these times, there is a stronger and more urgent need for community togetherness. Community spirit is being eroded, especially where I come from in Brixton, where gentrification projects are ripping the heart out of communities who have been there for generations. Whereas ‘before’ we were, in essence, already self isolating through being wrapped up in our own individual concerns, this national collective experience has provided the impetus we needed to reach out to our neighbours, either through needing help, or the offering of help.
