The Story of Prince Lee Boo

More to come on our project with residents of  Rose Court Care Home thanks to a small grant from United St Saviour’s.

Marking Places

It was a pleasure to work with local people to research, design and make three commemorative markers for Burgess Park. The project included: a heritage talk to hear ideas and identify sites for the markers; looking at photographs, maps and stories from the area; making models, designing and making the markers. We are delighted to have worked with the community to mark the following sites in the park: Market Gardens, North Camberwell Radical Club, the Foundry and other works.

Zeppelin 1917 exhibition and workshops

One hundred years ago, on October 19 1917, a Zeppelin bomb landed in Calmington Road. We were delighted to run workshops as part of Friends of Burgess Park Zeppelin 1917 heritage project.

Community Green

Our successful application to Bankside, Borough and Walworth Neighbourhood  Fund, enabled us to continue or food-growing and gardening project over a second Summer. The project began in 2016 with funding from the The Mayor Of London’s Get Moving fund which encouraged fresh approaches to physical, mental and creative activity for older Londoners. Run in partnership with Southwark Council and based in Burgess Park community garden, it was one of only 16 projects in London to receive funding.

Thanks to a small grant from Notting Hill Housing, we also ran Intergenerational Summer Workshops for people to design, decorate and plant containers for their balconies and gardens.

Green Elephant Drawing Club

We were excited to work with children and young people from Newington Estate in partnership with InSpire Youth Service. We ran workshops culminating in an exhibition in and around green spaces at the Elephant and Castle.

Place to Remember

Place to Remember was our heritage project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund exploring the social and architectural history of four local buildings in Walworth and Camberwell. We were delighted to have so many local people and organisations involved, and that ASC gallery was able to host our final exhibition.
