Dear Boris was made using drama, animation and live action with children living in Westminster as part of their campaign to improve housing for children and families in London. This project was part of Save the Children’s In My Backyard programme, with the support of Westminster City Council. Dear Boris has been used to influence the London Assembly and in the No Space at Home campaign. More info: Melissareesherman@live.com and vimeo.com/storyprojector and https://bunnyschendler.com/

2. Those Whose Souls Resist Repossession
Those Whose Souls Resist Repossession shows the fate of former occupants of a council house. They have come back to life but have been embodied in bits of furniture and parts of the house as they try and find each other and make sense of things. Memories contained in domestic objects are explored in the light of the human dimension of life that gets suppressed when necessary resources like housing get turned into objects for accumulation of value. Objects pushed around like people expose the social economic currents that are in no way ‘natural’ or inevitable like storms.
In the heart of liberal metropolitan elite North London, a huge new housing development is being planned by Camden Council and local landowners. Still at the planning stages, Camden Community Makers, a local group of artists and residents, wanted to find out what impact this proposed development is having on the local community.
