New Town Culture :-) :-D :-& :-O

Art for young people (adults welcome ;-)

The ;-) :-& ;-O New Town Culture: Art for Young People (Adults Welcome) exhibition at Valence House Museum is a place for young people to relax, talk and be creative. This exhibition by artist Rebecca Davies is for young people but they can bring adults along too! You will find gigantic, noisy art made with young people at the many New Town Culture clubs and projects.


New Town Culture is pioneering initiative building new connections between art, culture and frontline social care services. A programme of artistic and cultural activity taking place in adult and children’s social care across the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, working with artists, social care staff and carers to develop creative ways to support systemic change and to unlock the value of art and culture for all communities.


Rebecca Davies is one of over 25 creative practitioners developing new work and relationships through the New Town Culture programme. Her work with foster families throughout 2019–20 forms the starting point for this exhibition exploring creativity, interaction and conversation shared between adults and young people.
