Peterborough School of Art - The Cutting Edge

To promote and develop art and culture within the diverse communities.

0,1 Space and Identity is a project which aims to aspire individuals and communities with an understanding of our diverse heritages.

"0" (Generation 0) represents those people with cross-cultural experience - one travels from one culture and lives in a place of another culture.

"1" represents the 1st generation who was born locally (for example those born in Great Britain) but have a dual cultural heritage through their parentage.

"0" also symbolises space, and "1", Identity - "0ut of many, 1 people", an aspiration acquired from fieldwork in Jamaica.

The concept behind 0,1 Space & Identity is to examine the effect of migration (0), and any subsequent experiences of disillusionment, displacement, alienation and/or reintegration, and how these experience impacted on the next generation (1) and beyond.

Jamaica became the 'common ground' for the sharing of space with Jamaican and Chinese communities both in Jamaica and Great Britain.

The Project is funded by Arts Council England East and supported by Momentum Arts Diversity Programme, Cross Currents and the Peterborough School of Arts with a matching fund from local councils and schools.
