Research output: Book/ReportBook


Open Plan is a long-term public art and education project which invites international and UK based artists to create art with and for the South London Gallery's close neighbours on Elmington, Pelican and Sceaux Gardens estates. This fully-illustrated book draws on artist interview transcripts and visual documentation in the South London Gallery archive to provide an overview of the programme from 2017-2021. An essay by youth and community worker Luke Billingham addresses the question: What can Open Plan do for Children and Young People?
