Between 2019 and 2021 Keefe worked with residents from across Becontree on the development of a new Residents Handbook as something both useful and as an artwork In August 2021 a virtual round table was held online between the artist and eight residents, discussing key themes that feature in the Handbook and Living Together: Housing, Politics, The Future and more. This features as a central spread that weaves through the publication. Participants from the virtual round table will join the artist in a conversation with curator Charlie Gregory, who worked with Keefe on the emerging handbook and Living Together between 2018 and 2020.
