Out of the Box:
Through a series of workshops, the participants engaged with sound, oral history, handwritten archives on parchment, newspapers, painting and photographs.
Their inspiration from in-depth research is captured in their own artwork: from sculptures and hand-made cushions, to drawings and poems such as Limehouse Lures, "a fictional tale inspired by all the newspaper cuttings I read about Chinatown when it was based in Limehouse." (Rowan, participant)
