Brave Imagination is a young group of artists from all over the world who are studying English at Lewisham Southwark College (ESOL 16-19 years). The students were invited by the Old Royal Naval College to explore and respond to the symbolism, drama and history illustrated in the Painted Hall, Greenwich.The work encompasses an exploration of journey and dislocation by way of repositioning, reinterpreting and repurposing elements into new arrangements.

Local artist and educator, Michelle Butcher, facilitated and curated the project.
