Mar 2016 - Oct 2017

Making Routes is a project which invites disabled and non-disabled children, young people and artists to come together through creative workshops and events to explore ideas, make creative work and explore their local cultural spaces.

The project will culminate in an inclusive festival for children and young people in October half term 2017. This will be a chance for everyone who took part along the way to share their ideas and their creative work. 

Upcoming workshops and events

We Are Here

This autumn, artist Jo Paul is collaborating with the children and young people of Lady Allen Adventure Play Park and the George Shearing Centre in a series of workshops. Together they will investigate the lives and voices of children from Battersea Arts Centre's Victorian past and explore themes such as: our own voice and presence, noticing where we are right now; what do we want to say 

The workshops will culminate in the creation of an installation by Jo Paul, informed by her exploration with the children and young people, presented in the Council Chamber space at Battersea Arts Centre on Tue 25 Oct 2016. If you would like to come and visit the installation, please book in for either 12.15-12.45pm or 1.30-2.30pm slot by emailing in advance. Space limited.
