Explore this radical education project and get involved in reactivating its archive through workshops, talks and performances

Don’t miss SERP Reactivated! A once only opportunity to learn about the radical Southwark Education Research Project (1989-95) and take part in reactivating its archive with artists Barbara Steveni and Barby Asante.

  • Be part of the recreation of Recycle & Discuss by British conceptual artist John Latham – create your own sculpture made from rubbish and join in the debate.
  • Discover the original Southwark Puzzle by Rita Keegan and join students at Charter School in performing the archive.
  • Talk to students from University of the Arts London about arts in education and contribute your views to the SERP Vox Pops.
  • Find out why the concept of the ‘open brief’ and its role in artist placement in schools was so critical. Watch recent oral history testimonies from SERP participants and see original archival material.
  • Be inspired by original artworks and banners and how they are reimagined in our current times. Take part in the free talks and events including critical voices from arts and education exploring the need for this project to take place right now.

This event is programmed by Peckham Platform, a Tate Exchange Associate.

About Peckham Platform

Peckham Platform is a creative and educational charity dedicated to commissioning and supporting social arts practice in Peckham and beyond.

Our gallery is closed while work takes place to redevelop Peckham Square. While our new gallery is being built Peckham Platform will deliver an exciting series of projects across Peckham and South London throughout 2018 and 2019.

Peckham Platform will take over the new gallery space in the redeveloped Peckham Square, set to open in 2020. Our new permanent home will have more space, better facilities and a greatly expanded programme of free cultural events.
