So i visited Whitten Timber this morning, to get to see what wood they had and order some  for my Final Project, I wasn’t expecting this place to be so massive ! Before I entered the building i met an artist who’s s currently renting a shed right in the yard. He does stone curving/cutting, so we had a nice chat about stone,art and Cyprus. He visited actually two years after the war. He was really nice, he even gave me a piece of Stone that he didn’t need. I ll probably use it in of my Sculptures…
The people running the shop at Whitten Timber were really helpful. I got around 30 meters of wood that will be delivered along with the piece of stone, eventually on Tuesday after two at Wilson Road..

On my way back to Camberwell i went by to have a quick look at Peckham Platform, this time the plarform invited Platform Press House.

Together the Youth Platform and Harold Offeh form the editorial board of a publishing house that will present work from within the group alongside contributions from the wider Peckham community.

Platform Press House aspires to build on the rich legacy of radical, small independent publishing houses in London and beyond that have created opportunities for artists, writers and creative thinkers.

From now till the 31 July the project is transforming the Peckham platform into Platform Press House. This summer residency and exhibition will redefine and question the contemporary role of the publishing house, animating the gallery as a live publication in text, image, video and audio.

The content will reflect the editorial board’s diverse interests across poetry, art, music, dance, politics and social issues and will exhibit material produced by the editorial team alongside guest publications including local zines, reproductions of books and articles and political pamphlets. A live production space will encourage visitors to contribute to the development of a run of new publications that will take shape across the exhibition. Visitors to the gallery will be able to explore the resources and respond to provocations from the editors as they make their own contributions to the project.
