Community artist Michael Needham from the UK
In January this year, community artist Michael Needham visited Melbourne from the UK to create an arts project with tenants of the Carlton Housing Estate. Michael had established Neighbourhood Watching, an arts organisation based on the St Peter’s Estate in Bethnal Green, London where he is a resident. The organisation has developed a series of arts based events becoming an innovative model for community development. At this Artists’ Talk, Michael discussed his arts practice and the Neighbourhood Watching organisation.
