Big Family Press with OOMK

February 2018

We've been working with South London Gallery and after school club at Oliver Goldsmiths Primary School in Peckham for the past six months with the aim of exploring heritage through the knowledge and ideas of children. Workshops were co-developed with children and using local knowledge, knowledge of ourselves and our imagination we made books, art, games and wrote stories together. The Big Family Press has emerged as a result of the project and describes the people involved and a way of working. Big Family Press with OOMK sees the First Floor Galleries at South London Gallery transformed into an archive and community printing press from 28 February – 11 March 2018. Come and see what we've been up to and through a range of critical and creative activities, use a risograph printing press and other DIY publishing tools available in the space to share your knowledge, experiences and stories, contributing to an archive which will evolve over the course of the exhibition.
