About this service
Meet our collective, Billie and Abdou!
We are two artists from Southampton who came together to deliver our project, Space 2 Create.
Billie makes drawings about her life and the people in it and finds it helps her to understand her emotions. She also makes clothes from old scrap fabrics.
Abdou is a poet and painter who uses art and spoken word to express himself about inequality and racism. He has won several awards for his poetry and performed live and on camera.
NSAC are running our project Space 2 Create through The Agency, a youth entrepreneurship programme working in Northam and St Mary’s to get young people involved in making change in their communities. The programme has helped us to connect with other community-facing organisations in the city, and develop our skills in public speaking and networking.
We hope we can pass on this sense of community connection to the young people involved in our project. If you know someone aged 11-18 in the area who would like to participate, email or message us!
