Listen to the audio recording of this session below

Join us for a workshop taking an interactive look at the history of public and private space, focusing on Croydon and its open spaces. Led by historian Katrina Navikas, it will tackle questions about regeneration, gentrification and the role of the arts. We will use maps and copies of archive material to produce creative responses to the issues, so come ready to get stuck in.

This workshop is open to all but booking is essential, as spaces are limited. If you have any access needs that you would like to discuss with us in advance of the session, please get in touch: holly@turf-projects.com

Groundwerk is a monthly series of free practical workshops for artists and creatives wishing to gain the skills to support their practice. This workshop is supported by Arts Council England.

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.
