Cultivate That

This March through to the end of May, the Propagate This artists have been invited back for a new project/residency at Turf Projects called Cultivate That.

This is an opportunity to continue what we had started exploring during our first commission, and to spread, define and grow our creative contributions.

At the first session on Saturday, all of the artists introduced something they had worked on during Propagate This, or another art piece they had created.

I shared the process of creating Street View, explaining the energy-consuming process and what it took to get the idea to where it was.

This time, there were participating organisations that us artists could choose to work with. I was interested in Friends Of Park Hill Park, and their story with The Walled Garden which they are transforming through crowdfunding and volunteer action.

I was also interested in using one of Turf Projects’ Fungus Press boards (map of the Fungus Press Boards here). In late 2021, I had worked with ArtPress to create a project on the Fungus Press boards called, “Us, Those Next To Us, Those Next To Them”, a project about hyper-localism in Croydon.

This time we’re quite keen to work collaboratively with a group of other young people or artists. The STREET view piece we did for Propagate This was essentially a self portrait, created from my point of view with no outside perspective (double meaning).

In Cultivate That, we want to take the next step, spreading outwards. Not too far from where we were, but far enough to find something new…
