Lamp at St Luke's Community Centre

May 2015

Since Rachel's arrival in November at St Luke's Community Centre as Artist in residence she has worked with local community members both here, White Cross Street and at St Luke's School. In May she worked with St Luke's over 55 groups to create a large inflatable lamp exhibited at Cubitts Summer Ball and at Fizz Fest. Here members collaborated on a collaged piece to show what St Luke's Community Centre means to them. The large inflated piece illustrates the thoughts, ideas and interests of the members of the centre. Initially working with the Arts and Crafts group, then with additional contributions from members of the club room, the men's shed, the cookery school, and the life drawing group, this coming together of exceptional work tells a story of the vibrant life at the centre and its relationship to its members.
