The Missing Pieces to Society

The Missing Pieces to Society – Voices of Thamesmead’s young Creative ResearchersThe missing pieces to society artwork

The Missing Pieces to Society is a 4-part podcast discussing issues of contemporary identity, produced by the Creative Researchers - a group of nine young people from Thamesmead.  You’ll be hearing opinions from all of us, with honest discussions and vigorous debate on topics from double standards to discrimination; what causes insecurity, men who wear suits, and the importance of  friendship.

Our podcast is the outcome of a 4 month Participation Action Research project run by artist Dunya Kalantery as part of the Creative Knowledge Project - working with residents of Thamesmead in the run up to the opening of a new library on Southmere Square. It brings together ideas and creative research that we have developed on public space, care and knowledge over three months; looking into our own lives and our environments, the issues that impact us, which we want to be heard on.


The creative researchers are Julia Huynh, Michelle Ndlovu, Sarah Hocine, Maruf Chowdhury, Bianka Woode, Janice Aribisala, Daniel Kamere, Thelma Obirai and Sibo Ngile.

The Creative Knowledge Project is a partnership between Bexley Council, Peabody Housing Association and Bow Arts, funded by Arts Council England and supported by Peabody Housing Association.
