ABOUT

Norwood JunkAction will facilitate a series of workshops and lectures both for children and adults by artists and experts offering new skill-learning as well as knowledge around eco-consciousness, mental health and more. These studio-based activities will help participants develop and exercise critical thinking and artistic skills alongside their volunteering action.

FESTIVAL

Norwood JunkAction is a

new eco-community art project that turns litter collected in South Norwood

into artwork to be exhibited at a

street festival in 2023 as part of the Croydon Borough of Culture.

Norwood JunkAction aims to reach and benefit the diverse population of South Norwood through a vibrant artistic process that will inspire a sense of collective responsibility, pride and hope in our community. 

 

​​Participants will be provided

with free studio space where they will transform

the litter they collect in the neighbourhood into art sculptures and installations.

These artworks will be displayed in public spaces during the inaugural Norwood JunkAction Festival in 2023 in association with Croydon Council, local businesses and organisations.

SUPPORT

The project promotes well-being and empathy for others and the environment. It serves as a creative platform for the volunteer work of the members of the community who are actively engaged in keeping our neighbourhood clean, yet remain invisible to most of us.

Norwood JunkAction is a non-profit project led by the efforts and enthusiasm of a small team working on a voluntary basis. In order for the project to grow we need all the support that we can get.

Please consider donating to our crowdfunding campaign.
