A collaborative creative tour & zine-making workshop. Use drawing, photography & writing to explore how nature persists in Croydon’s built environment
Who and what is allowed to take up space? How can we resist & persist despite everything?
Join us for a Turf-projects workshop led by B Atherton and friends, connecting our memories & sense belonging in Croydon, with that of the natural world.
- We’ll 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.
- We’ll explore how important nature is to 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.
- We’ll then regroup over a shared lunch 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 us know if you have any dietary restrictions
