Barking Metamorphosis

In October-November 2008, UrbanWords worked with muf architecture/art, the writer, Yemisi Blake and product design students from the Royal College of Arts on a pilot project, Barking Metamorphosis. The project, funded by London Borough of Barking and Dagenham arts department, explored links between the Barking Learning Centre and a new public space, designed by muf.

Yemisi ran a series of workshops with local young people, and created his own work as part of a short residency. The RCA students created a writer’s room for him within the learning centre, and responded to the workshops by creating ‘props’ and metamorphic furniture.
