This commission led by London-based cultural worker Dhelia Snoussi will publish a collective record of South Kilburn, a place where self organising is intimately linked to care, community building and resistance. Published as a zine the pages will hold interviews, poems, recollections and archival images recording a history of the Carlton and Granville Centres.
The process of collating this history asks how do we collectively document histories of friendship, community organising, and support? How can the process of archiving support new understandings, a living archive for present and future purposes. The zine will be a dedication to collecting, preserving, and sharing archives of care of community organising often at risk of displacement and erasure.
The zines will be distributed through the Granville Community Kitchen food bank parcels, as well as door to door hand delivery.
