A Pocketful of Magic (2009)
A Pocketful of Magic
This project was made in collaboration between artist Hester Jones, writer Dzifa Benson, and choreographer Greta Mendez with older participants at a London residential home. Over the course of several months the participants took part in interactive workshops that explored storytelling, photography and dance. The project culminated with a publication of photographs and stories, with accompanying DVD, and a celebratory event at the Lord Mayor's Parlour Westminster. The commission was produced by Westminster Arts, funded by Westminster City Council and supported by Central & Cecil Housing Trust.
