Good educational practice shares many features with artistic practice. Both can lead to experiences which change the way the world is experienced. I have always attempted to work in a way which encourages creativity and an openness to new experience. Besides projects in the UK, I have also had the good fortune to lead projects in Gambia, Tanzania, Thailand and the Palestinian controlled areas in the West Bank and Gaza.

Whilst working on an educational commission for Deptford-X, I made a series of interviews of people in Deptford on market days. The following recording is of Mr Campbell relating his experiences of being a black man in 1950’s Britain.
