InTRANSIT is an annual festival of arts in unexpected places. It takes place in locations across Kensington and Chelsea each summer, challenging artists and audiences with newly commissioned work outside of galleries and theaters.
The 2016 Portobello Pavilion (a temporary arhitectural structure at the heart of InTRANSIT) was designed by conflict artist Arabella Dorman and drew inspiration from the ingenuity of displaced people in self organising and building communal buildings very much like this one.
Inside the Pavilion arts based practical activities were led by various artists and partners around the themes of shelter, social architecture, community organisation and the UK Refugee Week theme of "different pasts, shared futures". In the evening, the art table became a communal dining table with "breaking bread" discussion sessions hosted by local figures, artists and writers who shared stories and experiences along the same theme.
InTRANSIT Festival and the Portobello Pavilion team are thankful to Arts Council England who's grant made this possible. We would also like to thank the Westway Trust who helped fund the fee to access workshops, and ColArt who provided our art materials free of charge. As last year, we are grateful to local residents and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council departments who have supported the project in a variety of ways.
