Paul Hamlyn Foundation This grant will support Create London to establish the White House, located within the Becontree Estate in Dagenham, as a permanent space for artist-led social practice in collaboration with local communities. More and better funding will expand both the number of residencies and activities programmed in the House; formalise local people’s role in governance and programming; and increase Create London’s evidence base of its long-term social impact on communities and individuals.
