Home Project is a creative community arts project exploring the idea of home with people who live and work in Peckham. Exploring the theme of Home through art making, film, music, poetry, installation and any other creative avenue we find together the project will involve an exploration of stories and experiences of Home and will culminate in two ways:
THE CREATION OF A TIME CAPSULE
A time capsule will be created that will hold 100 selected pieces to be sealed and held at Mountview in Peckham. In developing the Project we will consider how to store, archive, celebrate and commemorate the work.
PERFORMANCE AND INSTALLATION
A launch event of the work created by the participants across performance, spoken word, music, film, art installation, sound installation and photography at Mountview during Mountview’s 75 birthday year in 2020.
The Home Project will be led by Sarah Preece. The Executive Director and joint CEO of Mountview, Sarah is also a Peckham resident and Peckham Levels artist. As a member of the Peckham community and in her role at Mountview she is leading the Home Project to introduce the school and the community to one another.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Over the course of the next 18 months there will be a number of ways to get involved in the project. From art making workshops with Sarah at her studio at Peckham Levels, to short film submissions on the topic of home, to using the hashtag #homeprojectpeckham on your social media when you capture images that make you think of home – you can be part exploring what home is.
