For this edition of Fungus Press, the members of VIA (Visually Impaired Artists) have come together to produce a creative representation of feelings and thoughts about the pasts, presents, and futures of Croydon. The topics and feelings explored through the making of these posters range from:
- Nostalgia of the past and feelings of longing for the beautiful, active, creative Croydon of the past.
- Paying tribute to unchanged/untouched spaces that exist, and examining the tension between a lack of space and an abundance of new places being built.
- Hopelessness for the future, feelings of despair, through imagining the dystopian futures ahead of us.
VIA wants to use creativity and fantasy about the past and future of Croydon to express very present fears and hopes about our everyday spaces.
