Discover this community-led brickworks project documented by film maker Amaka Ejizu

Film maker Amaka Ejizu has documented the community research project Brickfield Newham, which set up a brickworks on a construction site in the Royal Docks this year. Ejizu has captured how local communities came together to make bricks from local industrial waste materials and make performances from local histories of housing and brickmaking. Brickfield Newham is a V&A Research Institute and V&A East collaboration, devised in partnership with St. Austell’s artist-led project Brickfield and University of East London’s Performing Arts department, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Newham Heritage Month and Arts Council England.
