In Spring 2021, Creative Society piloted a new strand of Creative Job Studio work, Creative Rewilding, to support young freelancers during the pandemic and help them re-engage with their creative practice as we emerged from the isolation of lockdown. 
9 young artists were commissioned to produce new work in varied media, from film and sound to visual art, inspired by a London-based 'wandering' led by our alumna and Artistic Director, Saira Niazi. A series of three wanderings took place in West London, Greenwich and Bermondsey, exploring hidden spaces and the different communities and landscapes in each part of the city, followed by a showcase of the artists' work at Southside House in Wimbledon. You can now view their final work online: Creative Rewilding Virtual Exhibition
 
We are delighted to present a short film produced by Luke Baker, another former Creative Society mentoring participant, to track our young artists' journeys and experiences along the way. 


Creative Society remains committed to helping young creatives develop their practice and skills in challenging circumstances. If you would like to know more, or support the next stage of Creative Rewilding don't hesitate to contact us: [email protected] 
 
Thank you to Arts Council England and the DCMS' Culture Recovery Fund for its support of the pilot project.
