Shadwell and Brick Lane 1983-6
The No Kidding Project
This was funded by the GLC and was a collaborative project with the Cockpit Cultural Studies Department (ILEA). Using photography with young people we produced a series of exhibitions and booklets based on their work exploring issues of adolescent identity and belonging related to gender, ethnicity and class. This included a short graphic novel ‘Whatever Happened to Janet and John’ which sparked a debate in the GLC chamber about whether ‘comics’ could be considered ‘art’.
