In January 2020, the SLG’s REcreative Editorial Board present a new exhibition at the South London Gallery, asking visitors to respond to the question: what’s not being said about Peckham?
Daily open forum workshops cover a range of themes, from gentrification to social justice, accessibility and diversity, and other issues affecting young people, arts and culture in the local area.
The exhibition features a display of painting and collage submitted by local young people in response to an open call posing the question: what’s not being said about Peckham? Throughout the week, local school and community groups will contribute to the display. In addition, visitors are invited to use materials in the room to add their own thoughts, feelings and responses to the space.
REcreative Editorial Board is a platform based at the SLG for creatives at the beginning of their careers in art and culture to share their experiences in order to learn, give support to and create opportunities for each other. Members of the group will be in the gallery during the exhibition to meet and talk with visitors about the project.
