What skills do you have, what skills do you need?

People’s Bureau ran a monthly skills exchange open to anyone who wanted to offer their talents, ideas and skills to further our collective learning. The skills were defined by what the local community wanted and needed. 

Tapping into local creative resources participants worked with ceramics in partnership with SAFE Productions, photography, with Community Darkroom days at Hugh Baird College, and with ways of combining the two through portraiture, self-representation, and pots.

People’s Bureau is led by artists Rebecca Davies and Eva Sajovic who have been organising skills exchanges with people in Elephant and Castle for the last 8 years.
