New Town Culture is a pioneering programme curated by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham to develop artistic and cultural activity as a core part of social care services. The programme explores how artistic and cultural experience can reframe the work of social care and support adults and children using services.

 

New Town Culture encompasses research, projects, exhibitions, publications, tools for practitioners, residencies, workshops, training and knowledge exchange to bring together creative and social practitioners in their work. In 2021, I worked with the team to produce a series of podcasts - recording conversations between artists and social workers, as well as the sounds of the environments in which this work takes place.
