Bermondsey Project has been a truly collaborative venture that has become one of London’s most vital arts communities and a key player in the cultural renaissance of the area. Sadly all this will come to an end due to redevelopment of the site next year.

In September 2014 Crisis Skylight Bermondsey and the gallery will be closing and in March 2015 the remaining building users and partners, Bow Arts, Crisis warehouse, London Sculpture Workshop and London Community Furniture will also be moving on.

To mark this and celebrate all that has been achieved over the last 5 years we will be hosting an all day series of events on Friday 12th September. These events will showcase the artists, designers, makers and other partners who have contributed to the projects unique cultural mix, for more information click here. The 12th will aslo see the opening of two exhibitions. In the Ground Floor gallery Mark Wallinger will present the Best of Bow Arts, whilst on the 2nd floor, Zandra Rhodes will open ‘Made In Bermondsey’ showcasing all of the designers and makers in the building, plus the work of our own members. For more information on these events click here.

We set up Bermondsey Project to stimulate debate and to act as a catalyst for our socially excluded members to re-engage and play an equal role in the project’s and our city’s creative output.

“Bermondsey Project has been a really exciting venture that has contributed greatly to the cultural life of this part of London – as well as providing unrivalled resources and facilities for ex homeless artists in London. Crisis would like to thank all of our partners who have worked with us over the past 2 to 5 years to create this unique project”

Director of Bermondsey Project, Mick Bateman

London Sculpture Workshop continue to do great things at their new venue in Thames Side Studios.
They have currently received 60% of their required £50,745 goal.
London Sculpture workshop seek to set up a community ceramics hub and foundry to upskill communities through material engagement and widen participation in creative learning across all demographics.

Sadiq Khan, The Mayor of London said “Our crowdfunding initiative is a chance for all Londoners to take part in the regeneration of their neighbourhoods from the grassroots up. I’m pledging support to an extraordinary range of local groups, for projects that will help strengthen their local communities, and make London an even greater city.”

We are thrilled that Sadiq Khan has pledged 20k towards our campaign ‘Melting Pot’, however without your pledges we cannot receive any funding. It is an ‘all or nothing’ model campaign which means our project needs further backing from Londoners to help make our community hub happen.

We are determined to reach our target –  if you would like to do any of our short courses and can’t quite afford the full amount, if you pledge at least 3/4 of the course fee via our Spacehive Campaign we can let you do the course!

There are numerous reasons because to why people coming from all over the planet would like to understand how to speak more

People have often wondered why children are more efficient in learning a second or even a third language when compared to adults. Scientists might finally have a concrete explanation on why children are much better at learning new languages.

italian lessons in LondonWith the aid of technology using animation and {MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)|MRI|magnetic resonance imaging, several childrens brains have been studied by researchers from UCLA. They found that the children’s ability to process language information on a region of their brain that is different from the region that adults use.

The Brains Role in Language Learning

There are various areas in the brain which control different functions. For instance, actions like walking orwalking  no longer requires people to consciously think of moving their hands and feet in coordination.

These actions are done because of people’s automatic brain functions. To link this to learning a new language, younger people actually use this automatic area of the brain in learningin this way, a second language to them is much like second nature. Adults who want to learn of a new language use a different area of their brain.
This is the reason that it is better to become bilingual or even multilingual as a child since the brain works a little differently as compared to how adults brains work.

Under 18s have the opportunity to catch up and learn new languages. This is because the opportunity to inculcate skills and information into the deep motor region of the brain is open until the age of 18; but with every year that passes, the ability to do this slows each time. This explains why older people have to think in their mother tongue and thentranslate words into a second language in contrast to children who would think automatically in another language.

Studies of the neurology of acquiring a new language have been proven to be useful. Learning the different geographic locations in the brain where information and skills are stored for both adults and children would give italian tutors the opportunity to improve their lesson presentations and instructions. To put it another way, children who learn accents and sounds while young would be much more advancedthan people who consciously study these sounds later on in their lives.

{Other Benefits of studying a second Language Early On

Studying a foreign language is easier for children than most adults as well as this great advantage, younger people have also been proven to do better in school, are more open to diversity,are more open to diversity, and score much higher on standardized tests. This is according to Francois Thibaut who runs The Language Workshop for Children. {There are nine schools around the East Coast who|Nine schools have participated in this workshop. Thibaut is known as an expert in foreign languages for babies and children.

{Through the efforts of|Because of people like Thibaut, more and more parents are recognising the importance of teaching a different language to their children. And as globalization now includes being able to communicate more coherently even to foreigners, exposing the future citizens to different languages would help equip them with the necessary language comprehension skills.

Situations are much easier handled by future ambassadors if they learn the language early on. Therefore, the future of the world is reliant on how todays childeren learn from the most important aspect of most cultures-language.
