Art of Change with the Barbican
Eelyn Lee has been invited to devise a new project for the Barbican's Art of Change season.
Working in collaboration with students from Sydney Russell School and commumity members from Barking and Dagenham, Eelyn will make new work to mark the 100 year anniversary of suffrage and the Representation of the People Act in 1918.
Through the project Eelyn is interested in exploring womens' stories with a lens on immigration, race and intersectionality.
Taking place over an academic year, the wider project 18x18 will see eighteen different classes from Sydney Russell School work with eighteen artists/companies including leading theatre company Complicite and beatboxer Bellatrix.
