Healthwatch Social Media Campaign for 6thFormers

Healthwatch Camden plays an important part in ensuring that service providers hear what sort of health care local people want. Young people are the focus of a social media campaign that Healthwatch is running from 23rd-27th April. Based on a joint project with 6th form students in Camden, videos available on Instagram from 23rd April, will explore the three top health issues for school students. Lindi Maqhubela of Healthwatch Camden talked to Camden Community Radio about how the campaign will run, why it matters and about how Sixth form students created content and designed the campaign.

Sally Buchan has an installation this week at the Flux Exhibtion

Camden-based multi-media artist Sally Buchanan doesn’t necessarily know what her projects are going to be about, but always knows that they are going to happen. Not surprising then that her contribution to the FLUX Exhibition – this week in the Parade Ground of Chelsea College of the Arts – is called ‘The Inevitable Installation’. Sally talked to Camden Community Radio while she was still on a high from the (not quite finished) work on her sculpture which she hopes will draw people into a space that suggests another world, another dimension. Consisting of ten cubes, each a different colour and constructed with scaffolding and organza that people can walk through or view from outside, the installation plays with shape and colour as overlaps transpose colours and convey different hues. On Monday and Tuesday ‘The Inevitable Installation’ will be assembled (and filmed with a time lapse camera) in situ.

Entry is FREE, Gates open each day at 11am. Chelsea College is next to Tate Britain at 16 John Islip Street, SW1 4UJ.
Bus 88, Pimlico tube station or River bus to Tate Britain.
