||Architectural Historian and Workshop Leader||Other Dissemination and Communication||SPID (Social Political Innovative Direct) Theatre Company||MAY-2013|
SPID is an award-winning professional company which uses site-specific theatre to engage young people with neglected environments. The company works primarily on council estates and is based in the community rooms of Kensal House. This Lottery-funded youth and community programme has used the Grade II*-listed Kensal House and Trellick Tower housing estates in west London as stages for its workshops and resulting performative tours. It was my responsibility to teach the young people aged 13-25 years the values of research, communication and archiving skills, as well as to conduct interviews and performative architectural tours of the estates.
