About'I Love London' presents the culmination of a series of workshops exploring multimedia art practice by students from Barking Abbey and Eastbrook schools. Led by artist Godfried Donkor and based on his SPACE exhibition 'Story of a London Township' earlier this year, it forms the first of three commissions for the Artists Programme which aims to introduce young people from Barking and Dagenham to the creative and cultural industries.

The newly developed Malthouse studio building is managed by SPACE and is part of the first phase in the development of the Creative Industries Quarter in Barking, led by London Thames Gateway Development Corporation.
