“Tenants shall be as free as possible to order their lives in their own way, so that they may pursue their originality…” LCC Becontree Estate Tenants’ Handbook, 1921
Since opening, The White House has been home to numerous artists and hosted a range of workshops, talks, dinners and events – with artist residencies resulting in activities including a socialist pantomime, a mockumentary film, a site-specific theatre production, and an anti-social social club.
Alongside the artist residencies, the House hosts a Front Room Programme, which includes coffee mornings, arts and craft groups facilitated by local people, poetry classes and film screenings. The Front Room Programme has been designed with the people that come to the house and is often a legacy of the artists’ projects and their own interests.
