A Phakama Storytelling Project

  • Have you got a story to tell?
  • Are you interested in hearing the stories of others?
  • Do you enjoy photography and performance?

 Of All People is a storytelling project about joining in, telling stories, building relationships and growing communities.

Through creative workshops participants documented each others’ stories in photographs, and curated an extraordinary multimedia exhibition dedicated to individuals, others, and the creative power of relationships.

The project is led by two experienced Phakama Associate Artists.

Kate Beales is a storyteller, theatre director and participatory arts practitioner.

Caroline Gervay is a photographer who specialises in working with analogue techniques including pinhole photography.

On the 17th of July Kate and Caro led a one-day mini Of All People workshop. The project was open to anyone local to the Isle of Dogs or Poplar areas. During the day a diverse group of participants shared their stories, explored common threads and sought out unlikely connections.
The project ran in partnership with 1love Community.
