Create 4 Change

FE Pilot course, London 2013-14

Create4Change is a pilot FE course commissioned by ArtWorks - Paul Hamlyn - to test a model strongly contextualized in the local community around the college. Young learners from creative pathways were given the chance to explore what socially engaged practice means.

Lopez facilitated the partnership between Newham Sixth Form College and South Plaistow Big Local community group and supported students in creating the visual content the group website.

The successful pilot was presented at Reprising the Conversation Conference at Tate Britain in April 2014 and provided the ground for a second phase of the pilot in which a community oriented art project will be linked to a level 3 Extended Qualification to test the possibility of a participatory art pathway in FE as part of the national curriculum.
