Two Degrees: Read + Talk + Make Open Day: A Community Maker Model | Andrea Francke
Building something you can’t buy.
Over the past two months artist Andrea Francke and residents from Glamis and St George’s Estates in Shadwell have set up a community ‘maker space’ where people can drop-in and use tools and materials to create and repurpose items for everyday living and use.
As well as being a place to meet, make and socialise it is a model for the collectivisation of labour and production, reflecting on self- sustainability, consumption and the agency and knowledge produced through building and constructing. Andrea and the residents will work together throughout the summer to establish the space, with the aim of establishing a permanent resource led by local residents.
Join us for an exploration of the possibilities of making and making spaces at the St. Georges Estate in Shadwell.
From 12-2pm there will be a lunch discussion around making in St. Georges. Those speaking include:
John Bell (architect and St Georges resident)
Tim Ravenscroft (East End Homes)
Andrea Francke (artist)
Sam Trotman (Artsadmin)
We would like to take this opportunity to launch the Wellclose Square Market.
The Wellclose Market will run from 2.30-6 pm. Enjoy a lovely day out, take part on DIY workshops and learn more about the project.
