After London - Juneau Projects
In the event of global technological meltdown, could you survive? Artists challenged students from The Warren Comprehensive and Barking Abbey School to come up with answers.

The Learning & Participation programme runs artist led projects that engage with people who live near SPACE artist studios. The two main strands are From School to Studio (local schools) and Artist as Neighbour (community).
