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

What Next?

Deptford X are running a summer 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.

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 project will loosely be structured in the following way:

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.
