Welcome to Re-Action School, the doors to the classroom are open.

Bring a packed-lunch!

Re-Action School is an intensive, quick-fire, learning experience exploring how to make personal responses to current politicised situations. Made up of a series of practitioner led micro-master-classes the programme focuses on hands on learning through using visual language. The micro event series aims to act as a school for sharing knowledge and developing practical skills to react, re-act! re (reversal) act (done again)

Bringing together art, activism and policy the first two Saturday School’s will focus on two Eastside Projects policies that are being discussed through Policy Show; 50% Women and Living Wage.

18 November

Day 2: 50% WOMEN

The second curriculum will use Eastside Projects policy commitment to work with 50% women as a starting point for action. The master-classes will ask participants to reflect on their own understanding of equality and balance within public and personal environments.



Class One: Liv Wynter
We start the day with a masterclass focusing on creating, developing and maintaining a personal manifesto. The class will look at the intersections of activism and art, with a focus on creative methods to utilise direct action. The masterclass will be informed by Liv Wynter’s 2017-18 residency with Tate Education.

Liv Wynter is a queer working class female artist working and living in South London. She graduated in 2015 from Goldsmiths University of London with a BA in Fine Arts. Her practice is focused on using the language of poetry and rap in live performance to draw attention and light to often ignored subjects such as sexuality, domestic violence, class structures and gender. Liv recently completed a residency at Liverpool’s the Royal Standard. She has performed at artist-spaces, galleries and venues including The Royal Academy, David Roberts Art Foundation and Late at Tate.


Class Two: Phoebe Davies
The second class of the day will focus on building an individual tool kit for collective working, departing from Phoebe’s work with female and non binary collectives, and DIT* culture including; Bedfellows, Freeparty and South London based DJ collectives. During the masterclass different approaches to sharing knowledge through mindfulness, listening sessions and approaches to self-care will be explored.

DIT*: (Do It Together)
