As part of Islington Exhibits (www.islingtonexhibits.com) I have been given the opportunity to be Artist in Residence at the St. Martin Centre.
St Martins provides housing, support and care for adults who have mental health problems or are ex-offenders with support needs. My residency started two weeks ago and in that time I have been made very welcome by the lovely people I've met there. The residency is supported by Rowen Arts (www.therowanartsproject.com) and co-ordinated by Cubitt Education (www.cubittartists.org).
Over the next couple of months I'll be getting to know the people who live and work at St Martins and by collaborating with them and collecting their stories we will develop an art work that will be exhibited at the end of June this year; I'll keep you posted.
The above image is of a poster I made to advertise the first in a series of workshops I'm running as part of my residency.
