Freedom to Be

Category: /

The Free Space Project is thrilled to have received funding from The National Lottery Community Fund for our new project Freedom to Be. The Free Space Project is a charity supporting arts and community initiatives within Kentish Town Health Centre, working in partnership with the James Wigg GP Practice in Camden (London).

Freedom to Be is our year-long intergenerational project exploring the theme of freedom from stigma with 3 of our local community groups in Camden. Across 2019/2020 the charity will be:

  1. Delivering visual arts workshops with children with special education needs (SEN);
  2. Delivering photography and creative writing workshops for young people facing exclusion from society;
  3. Delivering knitting and textiles workshops for adults and the elderly that may face social isolation and exclusion.

Each group will run consecutively and will respond to the work made by the previous group, forming a collaborative project exploring the theme of freedom that will be exhibited in the health centre at 2020.

Starting in August 2019 Freedom to Be begins with The Knitting Circle, an 8-week knitting and textile group for adults and the elderly to experience guided workshops that build on textiles skills. Children’s’ workshops will begin early 2019, followed by youth projects in early spring and our final celebration event in late spring 2020.
