Joyce on being awarded the artist-in-residence post
I am delighted and honoured to have been selected as an artist-in-residence as part of Westminster's Pop-up Project. This is an important step in my journey and that of the Black Heroes Foundation. The installation, Black Heroes @ The Gallery opened on Windrush Day, 22 June, closes on 27 July. Providing a space for participatory, conscious experiences, restaging the Black Heroes Soul Food Café in a Windrush Living Room: A celebration of our heroes, our life, and our times.
It houses living exhibitions, a Windrush Living Room, artists at work, and interactive activities and events. It provided rehearsal space for our new production the Story of John Archer which was part of our show at the Wandsworth Arts Fringe festival on 2 July. It has been a place to engage a wider audience, test out new ideas and gather new materials for consideration in our new productions.
