2011 to 2013: Reparation Art – Lambeth Youth Offending Team, London

I co-faciltated ‘Reparation Art’ program for Lambeth Youth Offending Team, London for 2.5 years. I worked with young people aged 13-18 referred from the YOT alongside arts and gardening colleagues. The project was ran as part of Creative Sparkworks‘ youth program.

The young people designed and made artwork to positively benefit the local community, plus develop their own skills to reduce the rate of reoffending. They made screenprinting screens and stencils to design a range of cushions for a local disability day centre. Together with Progress London, we made a pebble mosaic circular patio for a local community garden. A local housing estate wanted to incorporate more plants in their outside areas, so the young people made a range of clay pottery planters. St Thomas’ Hospital dementia ward were gifted a set of handmade wooden frames with original still life drawings and paintings made by the group for the day centre.
