To assist our colleague and project leader, Maxine Clark, Cockpit recruited an MA Student on the Arts Admin and Cultural Policy degree at Goldsmiths’ College. Maxine was joined by Chih-Lin Cheng who helped bring the project to life and managed the bunting studios over both Cockpit Summer Festival weekends.
“It was a great pleasure and honour to be involved in the whole process of planning and preparation for the Cockpit Jubilee bunting project. When I saw how happy everyone was and the variety of crafts I was exposed to, it made all the hard work and worries worthwhile. Thanks to the Cockpit Jubilee project manager Maxine, she was always reliable and amazing during the whole project, and every staff in Cockpit for all their advice and help, and everyone involved in the Jubilee bunting workshop. I had a wonderful and unforgettable time.”
We were very excited to be working with photographer Ope Odueyungbo at both Bloomsbury and Deptford. He captured the Cockpit Jubilee and the Cockpit Summer Festival in a fresh and contemporary way and his images have been used in this article.
“Super grateful to have been in attendance this year. I absolutely loved capturing the festival over the two weekends as it gave me a chance to meet so many new people as well as experience the vast variety of creative talent Cockpit Studios have on show.”
