Tracing Isolation

I am an artist and community worker based in Deptford and the wider Lewisham borough – I have now lived in the borough for 10 years. My art practice is sculptural, combining hard materials such as wood and metal with soft fabrics and wool. I am interested in repetitive actions and the therapeutic aspects of art. This combined with my work in the community as a support worker and facilitator has led to an interest in community arts. Within my role I work in a person-centred way to support clients who are feeling isolated to find their ‘place’ within their community.



Moves to lessen the isolation appears to have come as an after-thought to central government. I would like to use this art project to explore how we could have and can lessen the impact of this on our communities.
