Artist Feedback Session: Led by Kashif Sharma-Patel

Monthly free workshop to share your creative work in a supportive environment.

Taking place each month, our free feedback sessions are a chance to get feedback on your work from a practicing artist in a supportive and friendly environment. All kinds of creative work are welcome.

October’s feedback session will be led by Propagate This artist Kashif Sharma-Patel.

This workshop is open to all but booking is essential, as spaces are limited. The workshop will take place in-person at Turf’s space in the Whitgift Centre, but it is also possible to join us online. There are five slots available for showing work, but all are welcome to join in the discussion. For those showing work, please send through images or links you would like to share to: holly@turf-projects.com by Friday 8th October 2021.

If you have any access needs that you’d like to discuss with us in advance of the session, please get in touch: holly@turf-projects.com

How do our tickets work?

For our workshops & events we offer the majority of tickets free and then offer donations-based tickets after that. Free tickets go fast! We’d encourage you to book a donations-based ticket if you’re able to, to leave as many free tickets as possible available for those who could most benefit from them. Donations tickets can be as little as £1.

About Kashif Sharma-Patel:

Kashif is a poet, editor and artist raised in Croydon, though currently based in Elephant and Castle. Much of their work is concerned with reflecting on everyday urban experience, particularly through the lens of racialisation and gendering, and developing creative expression for that. They are interested in deconstructing policy-driven language with regard to development and futures, instead trying to find cross-cultural and innovative methods that may be submerged within the wider social ecosystem we reside. Croydon as a post-industrial brutalist multiculture is a prime site for thinking the wider picture through. They also see that as something tied to uncovering our sense of history, whether that be tied up in diaspora, industry, or everyday culture. While much of their work is poetry-oriented, they have worked with sound and performance, and they are keen to develop how we can collectively and consciously desediment collective pasts. They are an editor at the 87 Press, a small press for innovative poetry, and write freelance for art, literary and music magazines with a focus on queer and racialised experimental work.
