I teamed up with the talented writer-in-residence Anne E Cooper to work on this Arts Council England funded community arts project: ‘360: living under the shadows of regeneration’. It captured the true stories of residents from Cressingham Gardens Estate as their homes faced demolition. The book was divided into chapters from each area of the estate that I illustrated the chapter headings for.
Cressingham Gardens Estate was designed by Ted Hollamby- a idealist architect who believed social housing could create communities. It is a beautiful estate with gardens and private spaces everywhere, low housing and kitchen windows that face towards each other to create communities. I was honoured to be a part of this important project at a time where good and safe social housing is under threat in London. The resulting book of stories, illustrations and photographs (by talented Sam Mellish) ‘306:Living Under the Shadow of Regeneration’ can be bought here: https://cressinghamvoices.wordpress.com/news/
