Our Views from Kensal – Riverside Studios

6 & 29 June

‘Our Views from Kensal’ explores the heritage of the Grade II* listed estate of Kensal House, where the youth and community charity is based.

Young people interviewed Kensal House residents to create oral history testimonies which feature within the film and are being made available to the public at the London Metropolitan Archives. It has screened at the BFI, V and A and Trellick Tower.

The project allowed current residents to share their experiences and stories of living in Kensal House in order to bring its community, history and architecture to life. It takes inspiration from the 1984 full length film ’12 Views From Kensal,’ which juxtaposed filmed footage of the estate with interview with residents, local shop keepers, those managing the community spaces, and heritage specialists. It shows that without compensation and a halt to Project Flourish,  the future of Kensal House and SPID Theatre will be jeopardised.

After the 35 min film, SPID’s residents and young people will present performance poetry and host a Q&A. ‘Our Views From Kensal’ was created by SPID’s Estate Endz program, which celebrates the living history of social housing. The screening is part of a season of performances and films making the case for housing justice at Riverside Studios throughout June. The performances and films are produced in collaboration with young people, Estate Endz and local residents, including those who lost friends and homes to the council’s negligence. They raise funds for Grenfell United on their seventh anniversary and support the Compensate Kensal campaign in the spirit of solidarity.
