Instagram Challenge

Instagram Challenge mauve

In the lead up to the opening of the Creative Connections exhibition on 20th June, the National Portrait Gallery are running a weekly Instagram challenge inspired by portraits of people in the gallery who have links to the borough of Ealing. The idea came from Eelyn Lee's original proposal for her commission to create a piece of moving image work with year 10 students from Brentside High School. 

The first challenge [above] was created by Yousuf and inspired by William Perkin who invented the process for making the colour mauve using coal tar which was first produced in a factory in Greenford.

Check the Creative Connection blog for the next challenge and get invovled using the hashtag #ealingconnections 

Creativity, Money, Love


Last night we screened a short film at the launch of an exciting new online publication at the Jerwood Space, Central London. Creativity, Money, Love: Learning for the 21st Century asks,

"What does the education and skills system need to look like in order for people to lead fulfilled creative lives and for the creative and cultural industries to thrive?"

We were commissioned to work with our young filmmakers, Constant Pictures to interview some of the key contributers including Nick Williams, the principal of the BRIT School and Paul Latham, CEO of Live Nation UK.

The film was commisisoned by A New Direction and CCSkills
