What Is Your London?
For many, the idea of London conjures up postcard pictures: the London Eye, Buckingham Palace. However, these depictions of the capital that we’re used to seeing in the media, advertising and the press are outdated. That isn’t the reality for young people living here today. London is nothing without the people that live in it, and each individual has their own story to tell so the participants of Creativity Works: Visual Storytelling were briefed with showing the world what their version of London is, to let the world see their perspective.

The Inner Me
The Inner Me is a personal project focusing on four generations of the artists family-through their stories we learn how they navigate being Black Caribbean women in the UK.
Tishon Nicholson’s desire to document this history is driven by the lack of representation within mainstream media. As an exploration of what has changed and what has remained the same, these untold stories are voiced.
Family is often considered to be the foundation of identity, though there can be a disconnect between families relationships in contemporary society. Within this project, we discover the dynamics of family relationships and why family bonding time is significant in shaping who we are.
