QDT Laundrette

I’m so excited to be one of six socially engaged artists working on QDT Laundrette – a project produced by Arts organisation, Quiet Down There CIC.

My contribution to the project will take a writing focus and I’m really looking forward to engaging with local Brighton laundrette staff and customers and seeing what stories arise or what poetry appears…

As I work on this project over the next few months, I’m documenting my process regularly via the QDT Laundrette Artists blog.

You can visit mine directly here: www.qdtlaundrette-josephine.blogspot.com

But I encourage you to read the all the blogs as I’m working alongside such interesting and brilliant artists, which is really quite an honour :)

And if you live in Brighton and Hove and have any stories, thoughts or memories about laundrettes, please get in touch!

We would like to introduce Josephine Hall, a writer and creator who enjoys experimenting and crossing over disciplines.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Josephine is one of the socially engaged artists commissioned for QDT Launderette. A project looking at stories emerging from laundrettes now and in the past.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Her work tends to begin with a story and can take many forms from there – including fiction, poetry, essay and song. Writing acts as a facilitator to explore her and others’ identities, place and purpose in the world. She trained in Creative Arts, often working collaboratively, to create interdisciplinary pieces crossing over writing, visual art, music, performance, and film.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Nowadays, Josephine gets particularly excited about finding stories and poetry in unexpected places and endeavours to make work that is honest, accessible and amplifies unheard voices.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We are so excited to be working with @joyfuljomad and can’t wait to hear what voices she uncovers as part of her project.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Follow Josephines progress through the project on her blog⁠⠀ https://qdtlaundrette-josephine.blogspot.com/⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ http://www.quietdownthere.co.uk/qdt-laundrette⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #qdtlaunderette #launderettes #coinop #launderettestories #launderettelife #tnluk #acegrams #washingmachines #servicewash #laundryroom
