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.

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.
