gab worked with Horizon and Downsview SEN School throughout the autumn term 2012 on a project called Your Community. The work produced was exhibited at the Dalston Eastern Curve gardens, see here for details of the event.
Horizon School –
Looking creatively at elements of the urban environment and shared social spaces, gab facilitated the participants discovery of what inspires them in their local surroundings that makes up the fabric of Dalston’s community. Through guidied walks the participants photographed and documented the parts of their journey that they enjoyed. These images informed their creative exploration with line, colours, shapes, textures and collage.
Downsview School –
gab facilitated creative workshops based on a collection of sensory-based studies inspired by local social spaces. The children explored different smells, tastes, colours and sensations by printing with donated fruit and vegetables from Ridley road Market and textured leaves from Butterfield park, mark making with tea and coffee from Café Corner, and pattern stencilling inspired by the local mosque and african fabrics.
