See the Four Corners website for further details.

This intergenerational project enabled twelve younger and older Tower Hamlets residents to produce traditional black & white and colour photographs, alongside inverted digital colour prints.  The process was supported by local artist Sarah Ainslie, plus artist Jo Guile (Slade School of Fine Art) and scientist Dr Emily Patterson (UCL Institute of Ophthalmology) who set up RGB East to engage East London communities in the exploration of colour concepts.

Current Participants 
Catherine Tuitt, Cheneil Campbell, Fatima Ali, Henry Kenyon, John Fowell, Kayra Jariby, Lena Nawrocka, Marie Sleigh, Sebastian Garraway, Sophie Baker, Tiannah Samuel, Veronika Casarova 

Into Focus 
Into Focus (2019-2023) is an intergenerational photography programme, FREE for Tower Hamlets residents aged 14-25 and over 50. The programme consists of seven 12-week projects, supporting 84 local people to foster positive connection across age groups.

Four Corners
Four Corners is an arts charity that believes in film and photography for all. We champion creative expression, education, and empowerment, and have been based in East London for almost 50 years.

RGB East
‘Red Green Blue East’ is a project featuring East London based artists. Working through a scientifically engaged photographic practice they explore their relationship with Tower Hamlets through colour. Using the RGB East website below, Jo Guile (Slade School of Art, UCL) and Dr Emily Patterson (UCL Institute of Ophthalmology) have sought to engage East London communities in an exploration of the concept of colour. In a series of participatory curatorial workshops, the artists worked collectively as co-curators, coming together to craft an event that explores the scientific basis of colour and shares their subjective interpretations of colour in the local landscape. 

Website: https://rgbeast.co.uk/

Partners
Into Focus is generously supported by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets Local Community Fund, and Red Green Blue East is generously supported by a Beacon Bursary Grant from the Engagement Team, UCL Culture and UCL East.

How can artists flag the importance of political action on climate change? Leone Contini, Emma Critchley, Holly Hendry (Slade), John Gerrard and Onya McCausland (Slade) will discuss the power of art to draw attention to environmental degradation and ask how its production can be both sustainable and engage with wider sustainability initiatives, in relation to communities and place. One vital question will be whether it is the proper role indeed responsibility of the artist to draw attention to the importance of political action on climate change and do policy-makers listen?

Congratulations to Carey Young who has been awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship for her research project 'The Surfaces of Law'.

Congratulations to Carey Young who has been awarded a Leverhulme Research Fellowship for her research project 'The Surfaces of Law'.

Young will create a photographic series which examines the 'surfaces of law': details of legal architecture, including courthouses, prisons, law offices etc. Instead of the aesthetic blank often associated with law, the design of legal buildings can invoke a society's attitudes towards the judiciary, democracy and the relationship between state and citizens. What can architecture tell us of the bodies, lives, aspirations, profits, structural bias, injustices and/or histories of erasure contained within, and alluded to by these walls? Young's images will explore varying ideas of what law is, and what and whom it might seek to represent.
