Arcadia Art Workshop

Join our Arcadia Art Workshop this October half-term. 

Are you passionate about the environment and eager to make a positive impact on our planet? Join a free workshop for young climate-conscious creatives and explore what art and environment mean to you.

We’re looking for 14 – 25 year olds in Croydon to contribute to our exciting Arcadia project. This free eco-conscious arts workshop run by Trapped in Zone One will inspire you to turn everyday recyclables into art, and raise awareness about Climate Action.

The workshops will in part be inspired by the work of Andrea Bowers and her ‘Eco grief extinction series,’ where she uses a patchwork of cardboard to create large pieces which she then draws and paints on top of.

  • Bring along recycled material for an upcycle activity to raise awareness about Climate Action. This can include items such as cardboard, junk mail, old magazines, and tetra pak containers which will be put together to create placards.
  • Research local activists who are fighting to be a creative force for change and come up with your own response
  • Collaborate on mini-mural projects that showcase the collective strength of youth-driven change

Tuesday 24th in Stanley Hall 2-4pm

Thursday 26th in Scene Dock 2-4pm. Please note this workshop is for under 18’s only.

This is a two hour workshop.

A Stanley Arts & Boundless Theatre project delivered by Trapped in Zone One, funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation
