"Art School" Opportunity for 15-19 year olds from Lewisham Borough

What Next?

Deptford X are running an online art project for 15-19 year olds from Lewisham Borough on the theme ‘What Next?’ as part of We Are Lewisham’s Micro Commissions.

You will work with South London based artist and poet, Tyreis Holder. Together you will explore your hopes and concerns for the future and create a collaborative public artwork in Deptford.

All meetings will take place online and the project is free to participate.

For more information or to take part, email

The project will take place over a month and will take the form of four sessions with the final session including installation of the work produce in the public realm. The start date will be confirmed once all participant spaces have been filled. Deptford X will provide all art materials required to take part.


The project will loosely be structured in the following way:

Pre-Workshop: Short Zoom call with Parents/Guardians for detailed project outline and information around safeguarding.

Week 1: An introduction to each other and the project, and a brainstorming of important issues for the group. Our artist will bring ideas and stimulus to this session.

Week 2: Research and development of chosen issue(s) into an artistic idea – what, where, how. The artist will bring examples of similar projects for reference.

Week 3: Begin making elements of the art work. Necessary materials will be posted out in advance and artist will guide the making process.

Week 4: Further making and planning of execution/installation of artwork.


If you are a Parent or Guardian and you have young people aged between 15-19 in your household who would like to take part, you can use this online form to secure a place: Sign up here
