Annual fundraiser KindRedPacket 2022 have selected our Toynbee shared residency to support.


Ways of Being Together is an artist led community.

Our 2022 artists:

Jane Chan, Jasmine Chiu, Laura Lee Greenhalgh, Elina Akhmetova, Jay Yule, Loe D’Arcy, Dawn Collins, Iris Chan, Jia-Yu Corti, Kuan-Yu Chen, Linzy Na Nakorn, Hazel Lam, Sophie Nüzel and Jo Fong will be leading, facilitating and holding space for creative exploration.

In February the fourteen artists and their guests will come together as part of a shared two-week residency at Toynbee Hall as part of Artsadmin Lab programme. It’s about space and time to reconnect, repair, replenish and explore performance making and co-creation. The annual convergence is layered centring learning, support, coming out, forming community and actioning change. 

The first cohort of artists came together through a dance performance and creation process called Ways of Being Together. It was initiated by Jo Fong and created in collaboration with 48 people at Shoreditch Town Hall 2020. WoBT gave us the ethos, framework, joy, opportunity to be together – by listening, playing, supporting and being open. This year’s artists are self-selected bringing a wide range of interests through their artworks, everything from Power, presence, provocation, protest, grief, well-being, motherhood, masculinity, faith and grace.

7th – 18th February 2022
