Who and what is allowed to take up space? How can we resist & persist despite everything?
Join Turf Projects for a workshop connecting our memories & sense belonging in Croydon, with that of the natural world.
The afternoon will start with a walk & talk around Central Croydon, documenting how nature persists in Croydon’s inhospitable built environment, using photography and drawing, and sharing memories of these spaces.
The importance of nature will be explored throughout, contributing not only biodiversity but to local historical & personal narratives, as well as wellbeing, making connections between ourselves and our lives and that of the natural world.
After regrouping for a shared lunch, you will have the opportunity to discuss, write, draw & collaborate on a zine (self-published magazine) documenting our observations.
Free sketchbooks and a shared lunch will be provided. Please let Turf know if you have any dietary restrictions.
This event is part of This is Croydon, London Borough of Culture. London Borough of Culture is a Mayor of London initiative, with support from Arts Council England and National Lottery Heritage Fund.
