The Urban Transformation and the Politics of Care project involves artists working in collaboration with elderly people, market traders, care workers and young people to swap skills and develop ideas for social and architectural change.
Work will be presented at the Sackler Centre for Arts Education at the Serpentine Gallery, London in summer and autumn, 2010.
