Within The Walls

Eastbury Manor House, Barking

Installation,  Community Engagement, Sound Design

Created as part of GLOW winter festival in the borough of Barking and Dagenham, Within the Walls is a light and sound installation focused on bringing the voices and experiences of the community back into Eastbury Manor House. Visitors are guided around the courtyard by the voices of local people, via interviews conducted over several weeks with residents, community groups and schools in and around Barking. The installation is a response to the unusual juxtaposition of tudor manor house and the housing estate that encircles it.

The project was commissioned by the Arts Council and Studio 3 Arts. In collaboration with Emily Briselden-Waters.

With thanks to Sandringham Newham and Eastbury Primary School.
