Peckham TV is a collaborative project by the artists Harold Offeh and The People Speak. The project is the result of a period of research carried out by The Mothership Collective into the future of Peckham.
Following a series of workshops with local young people to develop ideas, the Peckham TV Public Event broadcast a live mix of public opinion in a game show format creating a collective vision for the future of Peckham.
The event featured 3d visualizations and footage from workshops screened via a large LED screen. There was an open mic session and a Peckham TV expert panel on hand with their views.
In a grand finale, participants voted on their favourite advert idea to decide on a new identity for the public face of Peckham. The final advert was screened at Peckham Multiplex on Tuesday 14th October, as part of Southwark's Black History Month programme, and online.
It was concluded that ‘it is not Peckham that is the problem, it is the media’s representation of it’.
