CREATIVE PEOPLE & PLACES HOUNSLOW
A Creative Community History of Hounslow’s Diaspora Food Markets
Freelance basis, £150/day, up to 40 days between February – September 2024
Creative People & Places (CPP) is a multi-year funding programme of Arts Council England. The aim of the programme is to increase engagement in the arts in boroughs where this has historically been below the national average. The CPP Hounslow programme is led by a consortium of 5 organisations, managed by Watermans.
This heritage project will focus on the food markets that serve the London Borough of Hounslow’s smaller minority communities from the Asian, African and Eastern European diasporas; in particular the Filipino, Nepalese, Afghan and Polish communities.
The project will be led by locally-based artist Alexis Parinas and the Creative People & Places Hounslow Visual Arts Programme, which is curated by local people.
The project will document the food cultures of Hounslow’s communities using oral history and photography to capture memories and images of the markets and the people who use them. A team of volunteers from Hounslow’s community will be given high quality training in oral history techniques and documentary photography techniques, enabling them to capture this important heritage for future generations.
We will further activate engagement in the project by running a series of talks, exhibition tours and creative activities.
