We're very excited about being invited to deliver a workshop in Brussels in January next year by the very brilliant Fanny Matheusen.    We plan to share creative facilitation skills to explore themes of migration for participants working in community development.

We’re delighted to have been invited back to deliver creative facilitation workshops to students in universities in Benediktbeurn and Munich.  deep:black enjoy sharing creative skills and techniques to help new students experience the power of the creative approach.  We’re excited about sharing our methodology and hope to be able to share our work in with students at a British university in the new year. 

Focus – delivering the pilot

on Tue 22 Nov 2016

We’re delighted to be working with Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust to deliver a project supporting the transition of young people out of the Children Adolescent and Mental Health Services.  Young people have been attending consistently and have expressed a genuine enthusiasm about taking a more creative perspective on their lives and the challenges they face. 

Birds Crossing Borders

on Mon 21 Nov 2016

We completed our Birds Crossing Borders project in September.  After almost a year’s work, designing, and distributing postcards nationwide, deep:black ran workshops in the camp in Calais in February, just one week before the camp began to be demolished and the first evictions and removals first began. (you can read more about our experiences in Calais on the BCB blog) The camp is now demolished; residents having fled war, persecution and suffering, evicted and relocated, facing uncertainty yet again.


Our project aimed to provide some much needed quiet reflection and connection. The two exhibitions in London as part of the Migration Museum Project Call Me By My Name: Stories From Calais and Beyond and Rich Mix reached 4,350 visitors. Visitors at Rich Mix described the exhibition as ‘very thoughtful and well executed’.  People particularly appreciated the power of the creative approach to ‘move beyond isolation’ to ‘connect, talk and listen’ and to ‘bring hope to others’.  A short film to capture the legacy of this project is coming soon. 

Peer Mentoring Training at Park View

on Wed 4 May 2016

We have just finished training the 3rd cohort of Peer Mentors at Park View School in Tottenham, as part of the legacy of our award winning project - Time 2 Talk.

The last day of the training saw the current Year 10 mentors working with the new Year 9 mentors to support their learning through role play and a Q&A session about what mentoring is really like.

The 4 day training also involved supporting a core team of school staff to get to know the materials so that they are now able to deliver the programme going forwards, which means the Peer Mentoring service within the school is now truly sustainable.
