'The young people in Caledonian Road have had enough.  You are invited to a council meeting with a difference.  Hear from young people as we all decide together how to make things better for our area, and for all of us.'

This site specific show, encompassing audio trail, interactive performance spoken word, gallery exhibition, live music and a whole lot of food was the culmination of an 8 month co-creation project between young people from around Caledonian Road and a host of fantastic artists.   Young People took part in a total of 46 workshops, including 2 weeks of intensive creative work and multiple trips to key organisations ranging from Raindance Film Festival to the Southbank Centre

The Market Project was the product of a partnership between The Working Party, The Pleasance Theatre, Hyde Housing, Southern Housing, The Mayors Fund for Young London, The Big Lottery Fund, Islington Council: Local Initiatives Fund and Arsenal In The Community.
