In August 2021, I spent three days in North Acton, London working with children and young people who live on Bashley Road Caravan site.

The children and young people made images in steel that have been constructed together into two seats and a table. The furniture will be permanently installed at the entrance to the Traveller site.

To find out more, please visit the main project page.

This project was initiated and supported by Bollo Studios, (the creative wing of Bollo Brook Youth Centre, in South Acton) and local youth charity JE Delve.

Before being installed at the Traveller site, the seats and table were part of an exhibition ‘Who Are We? Navigating Race, Class and the City’ at Pitzhanger Manor & Art Gallery in Ealing, London, 26th November 2021 – 13th February 2022.
