The Hundred Club is an experimental creative space that uses arts and play for children to explore social justice issues. Free and open to 5-12 year olds and their siblings, parents and carers.

The club was initiated by Ruth Beale and is produced by TACO!

A family club, we ask parents and carers to stay and get involved. 

Upcoming sessions:

Audio playscapes - Sound Walk, Sat 9 Mar, 10-1, Moorings Sociable Club, SE28 8BGChildren aged 5-12 and their families are invited to join sound artist Hadi Bastani and researcher Walter Stabb for a morning of audio visual exploring and sound walking in the Moorings area, as part of a special research project with University of Greenwich. What does play sound like? Can you record your own audio visual map? Using audio recorders, cameras and phones, we’ll capture sights and sounds of the surrounding area, before returning to the Moorings Sociable Club to share and experiment. You'll then be invited to have your recordings turned into a compositon by Hadi. Join us on the 16th March to see your recordings as part of a 360 immersive space at The Bathway Theatre in Woolwich. (We'll ask your permission to use your recordings). Supported by University of Greenwich and Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Audio playscapes - Immersive Listening, Sat 16 Mar, 11-1, Bathway Theatre, Greenwich Town Hall, Bathway, SE18 6QXChildren aged 5-12 and their families are invited to join sound artist Hadi Bastani and researcher Walter Stabb to play with audio and visuals recorded in Thamesmead in the 360 immersive space of University of Greenwich’s Bathway Theatre in Woolwich! As part of a special research project, create within the space as we experiment with what play sounds like, and how we can use pre-recorded footage to create an immersive experience made by children. Supported by University of Greenwich and Royal Borough of Greenwich.

We also run a weekly drop-off afterschool club at The Moorings Sociable Club in Thamesmead.

We currently have spaces on term-time Wednesday’s for 9-12 year olds. 5-8 year olds are invited to join the waiting list. For places please click here.

§



Members of the club contribute to our own kids-produced newspaper WAAAAH!, as well as taking part in other fun creative activities like designing and speaking to special guests. Children and families are involved in decision-making, and each term we ask the children what the important issues are for them.

Sessions are facilitated by experienced visual artists and designers. Through collaboration and hands-on activities members of the club  experiment and play through art and making, using these as an inspiration to imagine a more fair, just and equal society.

The Hundred Club was initiated in 2021 by artist Ruth Beale and TACO! Ruth Beale is a London-based artist. Their work troubles the structures and systems that shape society, from institutions to social ties to the public realm. Committed to the radical possibilities of working collectively and collaboratively, they use dialogue and exchange to rethink the ways we share resources and ideas about the future. In 2012 they co-founded The Alternative School of Economics with Amy Feneck, which explores economic and political issues in relation to the complexity of lived experience.


Recent commissions include Drawing Risky Play with Turf Projects, Croydon, London and Library as Memorial with Brent Biennial, London. Recent exhibitions include LIKE GODS at Swiss Cottage Library Gallery, Editorial Tables: Reciprocal Hospitalities at The Showroom and a major new installation by The Alternative School of Economics in Economics the Blockbuster: It’s not Business as Usual, The Whitworth, Manchester.
