White House Dagenham

The White House is a public space for art and social activity on the Becontree Estate in Dagenham, a project of Create London. Artists are invited to live and work in the house, exploring new ways to collaborate with the local community, by becoming their neighbours.

As Assistant Curator, I supported a range of projects including their Becontree Forever and New Town Culture commissions ~ celebrating 100 years of the UK’s largest council estate, and connecting leading artists with young people in care.
