100 Selfies was a project that took place in various community locations in South London during Summer 2021. 100 children were given a box containing art and craft resources, which they used to create a self-portrait. These 100 images have been collated together to form a large image of a figure jumping on the wall of the café which matches similar figures in the building. The project was linked to our reopening productions, Maanika and the Wolf and RED, which were both inspired by the story of Little Red Riding Hood. During two drama workshops, the children explored this story, considering how characters are represented and possible reinterpretations of this well-known tale.
We worked in partnership with Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust, Christian Care, Commonside Community Development Trust, Hall Place, Liberty Primary School, Carers Support Merton, Young Carers, Polka Young Voices, Polish Families Association, South London Refuge Assocation (SLRA), Sutton African Caribbean Cultural Organisation (SACCO).
Families from these organisations, who took part in the project, were offered tickets to see Maanika and the Wolf and RED.
‘The workshop was very interactive. My son enjoyed himself. He was able to be his confident self.’– Parent
