Living Together is a new project by artist Verity-Jane Keefe in partnership with Create London and London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Living Together will develop over 2019, leading to a larger scale programme celebrating the centenary of Dagenham’s Becontree Estate in 2021. It will look at the past 100 years of social housing through the lens of Becontree, once the largest social housing estate in the world; looking at the past, the present and into the future.
Artist, Katie Schwab and her father Ed Emery have begun a one-month research residency. The residency will mark the first collaborative project between artist, Katie Schwab and her father Ed Emery, a writer, political activist and researcher who has been documenting labour struggles in the motor industry since the early 1970s.
In 2017 collective practice They Are Here were commissioned to transform the former car park behind The White House into a community garden. This year they have been working with local participants interested in gardening, permaculture and construction ready for the garden’s opening in spring 2019.
The White House and Create London invite you to join us for a series of exploratory conversations and practical workshops to examine the challenges we face in generating and supporting greater participatory control over resources and community life.
We are launching our autumn season on Saturday 5 October and artists from our Make Room programme are taking over the house to programme an event full of making, meeting and eating!
Ève Chabanon will be back at The White House this autumn to celebrate the launch of her new publication, Anti Social Social Club on Tuesday 29th October, 6-8pm.
