During August 2019, young people from across Islington took part in Creative Tracks, a 12-day Institute of Anything Summer School, hosted by Central St Martin’s Archway. They produced GIFs, short films, zines, photography portraits, carnival masks and poetry. They also visited the ‘Get Up Stand Up Now’ exhibition at Somerset House and shared their skills with each other. A selection of their work is below.
Thanks to Ali, Aliya, Ela, Empress, Haajar, Henry, Iris, King, Lily, Mukhtar, Noura, Orla, Quinn, Rosa, Sam and Tom for taking part, and congratulations to those who gained an Arts Award.
The Summer School team were Ewelina Bartkowska, Paul Crook, Ciaran Frame, Anoushka Khandwala, Tharsini Mahendrakumar, Shepherd Manyika, Jiho Park and Dominik Slowik.
Visiting artists were Betsy Dadd, Stephanie Buttle, Belinda Zhawi, Levi Naidu-Mitchell, Gisela Torres and Soofiya.
Thanks to Islington Summerversity and Launchpad and Central St Martin’s for generously supporting the project.
