About : Seven Days in Seven Dials: A week in the life of London’s Cultural Quarters
Last month Proboscis and our FJF Placements Shalene Barnett and Karine Dorset worked with with participants on Seven Days in Seven Dials. Three books made by participants in the project are now available to download. The project involved a temporary exhibition, films, podcasts and books put together by participants from London’s Culture Quarter Programme working with podcasters, photographers, artists and the team behind the Empty Shops Network touring project. For a week ten artists and thirty young people employed on placements in some of London’s leading cultural institutions used 18 Short’s Gardens as a studio. During the week the group explored the area gathering local stories, histories and connections and captured a snapshot of life in Seven Dials in film, sound, photography and writing.
Seven Days in Seven Dials was devised by Dan Thompson from artistsandmakers.com and Dan Williams from Culture Quarter Programme and involved Richard Vobes, Steve Bomford, Michael Radcliffe, Natasha Middleton and Proboscis. Over thirty young people were involved from placements in the following institutions: Create KX in Kings Cross; Exhibition Road Cultural Group and the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington; organisations from the West End Culture Quarter (including The Hospital Club, The Design Council, National Portrait Gallery, English National Opera, Royal Opera House and Somerset House) and Proboscis.
