“Offret” is a process-based, community-focused project that will be part of the Exchange Radical Moments! Live Art Festival, which will take place simultaneously in several European cities on the 11th of November 2011.
In collaboration with the art collective 6th Hour Productions, and journalist Glenn Mcmahon, I co-facilitated a series workshops to provide the content for a community newspaper. The idea was to employ creative thinking to facilitate a reflection on what the community is now, and what it aspires to be.
The material from our discursive sessions informed stories that the participants wrote into articles, to produce a newspaper that represents their voice, the Headlines of the Future.
Copies will be distributed in Clapham/Battersea on the 11/11/11/, in correlation with a live video projection, onto a building that was badly affected by arson during the riots. Thus forming the final stage of 'Offret', the intervention.
