Camille Barton is an artist, researcher and the director of the Collective Liberation Project (CLP). CLP designs educational experiences to help people understand oppression, and how it relates to their lived experience, so they can stop behaving in ways that reproduce oppression, such as racism and sexism. This work is inspired by Camille’s ongoing research into Somatics and social justice: exploring how trauma from oppression is rooted in the body and how it can be healed with movement and mindfulness. CLP has worked with clients including the National Trust, Quakers in Britain, the ICA, Release, Sisters Uncut, The University of Sussex, SOAS, The Arts Marketing Association and Sunday Assembly London.
Camille’s art practice involves dance, improvisation, ritual and Afrofuturism to weave new realities fusing art and social change. In 2018, Camille directed ‘Space is the Place’, a three minute Afrofuturist sci-fi film produced by Channel 4 Random Acts. Most recently Camille produced RE:GENERATE, an arts festival focused on the intersections of drug policy, racial justice and liberation.
Camille will be hiring new facilitators in Spring 2019. If you are interested in working with CLP as a facilitator, please get in touch via the contact page.
Experience in art therapy, social justice or alternative education is preferable.
