Broken Plate: Events Schedule



With the Broken Plate weekend fast approaching, here we share a timetable of the events that will take place within the Stockwell Building.

Together with locally based arts company, Emergency Exit Arts, and the University’s Department of Creative Professions and Digital Arts with the Literature, Language and Theatre Department we have created a series of interactive experiences that are visible inside and outside the building. Through this project we hope you will enjoy discovering the building and look at what we can produce here.

TV film maker: Danny Santos Amaral

Abstracted Greenwich,

A hybrid digital video, hovering somewhere between an advertising poster and abstract animation – inspired by the history and recent excavations of Stockwell Street.

Sarah Daniel, Mike Feeley, Sinead McCarthy, Jelena Sipilova


A-Line Market

Enter the A Line market, an interactive colouring-in installation for all the family. Pick a flower, a plate of food or a pair of glasses from one of the stalls and get colouring! Inspired by the old flea market that inhabited Stockwell Street.

Artist: Anna Bruder – A Line Arts;

Sound recordings: Diana Nechilcuic

Film: Kyle Graham


Paper Cities

Immerse yourself in this video installation, created with local school children from James Wolfe Primary School, which creatively explores ideas surrounding changing places, developing communities and celebrating the heritage and future of Stockwell Street.  Through a series of workshops the young people have explored ideas about Urbanism and how Urbanist thinking can affect the way that we live and behave in the places around us?  It is this fundamental understanding of what makes places unique and how we can act to appreciate our environment that underpins the thematic content of the collaborative artworks and film.

Artist: Alex Evans with Film Maker: Kyle Graham, Sound and poetry: Arjunan Manuelpillai


Words from the Well

Discover the storytelling well and tales of what lies beneath Stockwell Street and old Greenwich. Hear short tales, tall tales or make up your own from the words in the well.

Storyteller: Arjunan Manuelpillai; Musician: Nick Cattermole


The Pub Under the Stairs
A cynical barmaid, a lady from the council and customers from another era all meet in a pub that time forgot. Inspired by the curious objects and artefacts that were dug up when the new Stockwell Street site was built, this 15 minute performance brings together live action and filmed images into a shared reality. Who and what was here and will you ever leave once you have arrived?

Directed by Jillian Wallis, film by Ed Currie.

Performers: Amy Bentley, Ruby Brown, Harriet Gandy, Daniel Ward-Nixon, Abbie Woolcott


Loops and Tides

An imagined Greenwich, looped in change, yet always returning, is evoked through animations, soundscapes and performance along with local residents’ views on how the centre of Greenwich has changed. The piece explores time and space and their impact on the area.

Lisa Hayes, Zhan Wang, James Riordan, Rory Dempsey



Sand is a mass participatory interactive projection work. It enables people to connect, communicate and play through drawing and writing. Sand is based on an online experiment, written by Output Arts member Jonathan Hogg, which was designed to allow people to draw interactively together across the internet, making simple, colourful marks that fade within moments.
