Arthouse 2024 Exhibition

Saturday, June 22nd, 2024

ArtHouse is a diverse and dynamic creative arts programme available exclusively to people accessing Single Homeless Project services. Working with professional artists and facilitators we design and deliver a range of creative courses across a broad range of mediums.

This year’s exhibition showcases fantastic work by Arthouse participants made in collaboration with exciting creative partners including Cass Art, the British Museum and internationally celebrated artist Nick Gentry.

We are excited to present artwork from group-work courses in mediums including sculpture, collage, photography, drama and creative make-up. Through these we have explored themes including ‘Identity’ and ‘Climate’.

We are also pleased to present our ‘Cass Art’s Artists’ section celebrating the 40th anniversary of ‘Cass Art’. This project showcases the fantastic creative talent of Single Homeless project artists selected by the ‘Cass Art’ team to independently create original work for this exhibition.

Led by our passion for equal access to the arts, Arthouse supports creative development and provides a space to share artistic ideas, skills and knowledge. We also build partnerships to increase access to some of London’s most renowned arts and cultural institutions this year these have included the Tate Modern and the Young Vic Theatre.

Our projects encourage participants to embark on the journey towards employment in the creative industries and provide platforms for unique artistic talent that exists across our organisation. Importantly, we also offer the opportunity for therapeutic creative expression and for participants to be part of an innovative creative community.

New Coasts

Sunday, March 3rd, 2024

Students from Unit C, Masters of Landscape Architecture and Urbanism at University of Greenwich, have curated an exhibition of their in-progress designs. Projects explore the coastal landscapes of Landguard Point, Felixstowe, and they question what is lost and gained as these landscapes go through designed and unplanned change. 

Helena Rivera and Ed Wall have worked with students over the last three years in Unit C, developing techniques of making tapestries to tell stories of landscapes going through change.

The tapestries are layered to portray complex urbanizing landscapes of infrastructures, processes and operations. Their three dimensions reveal spatial forms and sectional thickness. And their multiple scales connect human interactions with material, political and more-than-human contexts.

The New Coasts exhibition presents a curated work-in-progress through tapestry prototypes and working drawings. Students develop individual projects through generous collective practices. Their endeavours build on three years of in-depth research, design experiments, and evolving discourse between students and tutors in Unit C. 

The landscapes going through change that students have examined over the last three years include those told through myths and land injustice (2021/22), future coasts and climate (2022/23) and working coastal landscapes (2023/24). 

The tapestries are thick and heavy, designed to be hung, and read as narratives that connect specific histories of places with designed futures. They tell stories of everyday landscapes, challenged by processes of shifting sands, complete urbanisation, rising sea levels, extractive dredging and global container ports, layered with extraordinary designs of more equitable, shared and possible futures.
