Verity-Jane Keefe will carry out a year-long residency with Create London & The White House, taking place across Dagenham’s Becontree Estate through 2019, as part of Living Together.
Verity’s residency will produce a series of new artworks and events in collaboration with residents that will lead into a larger scale programme for 2021 to celebrate the Becontree Centenary, marking 100 years since building began on what was once the largest social housing estate in the world.
If you live or work in the Becontree Estate, we want you to be involved in Living Together. From joining a new Becontree Group, doing workshops, taking a walk, going on trips or playing a banjo — there are many ways to be involved over 2019 as we get ready for the centenary in 2021.

Tuesday 4 June 2019, between 5 - 8pm

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.
