The Forest is our Supermarket - RIVA
RIVA - Residencies in Visual Arts
THE FOREST IS OUR SUPERMARKET
Summer 2008, William Patten Primary School, Stoke Newington, London
My role: artist and educator
"The title is inspired from work done by ‘survival international’ to support indigenous peoples. In keeping with RIVA’s core beliefs, the residency had an environmental theme. RIVA explored the contrast between an indigenous person's experience of the land and our own society's experience of land."
"RIVA is a charity which provides artist residencies both in its Hackney studio and in schools. It gives participants the opportunity to experience directly the creative process by working alongside artists and to produce high quality artwork themselves both individually and collectively. I have been working for RIVA as an artist in residence for a number of years."
