Founded in 2013, Turf Projects is the first entirely artist-run contemporary art space in Croydon, South London. Turf Projects are a charity organisation working to support the development of artists, curators and the public through an ambitious programme of free exhibitions, workshops and events.
Established by creatives with a personal connection to the borough, Turf currently work across two ex-retail units.
Our main unit within Croydon Arts Store in Croydon’s Whitgift Shopping Centre houses:
– Our gallery space, exhibiting the work of both local & national, emerging & established artists
– A creative workshop & events space
– Artists’ workspace
– An open-use shared community project & exhibition space called LOFT, managed collaboratively by Croydon Arts Store partners.
Our second site at Keeley Road, our original home, now houses a project space and expanded affordable studio provision for artists & makers.
