Norwood JunkAction is an
eco-community project that transforms litter into sculptures; to be exhibited in the neighbourhood where it was picked as a street art festival.
Norwood JunKAction works in collaboration with local volunteers mostly members of The Litter Picking Friends of South Norwood a self-organised group already actively engaged in the neighbourhood.
Participants and volunteers will be provided with 2 months of free studio space in
which collectively or individually will transform their collected litter into sculptures. This artwork will be co-curated into a 3-day open-air exhibition + street festival in association with Croydon Council, local businesses and organizations.
Norwood JunkAction wants to reach and benefit the diverse population of South Norwood through a vibrant and artistic project that will have a positive impact, aspire to a sense of collectivity, pride and responsibility.
The project will promote well-being and empathy for others and the environment by creating a visible platform for the many members of the community who are already actively engaged in keeping our neighbourhood clean, yet they remain invisible to most of us.
We need your help to make this project happen; while donating money is an essential step at this moment, there are still many ways in which you can support or be part of Norwood JunkAction.
