Drawing Futures Together

11 June 2023

14:30 -15:30

Join local artists Lydia Porter and Sam Wills for a drawing workshop in Crystal Palace Park. Children will have the freedom to fantasise, imagine, and suggest their very own people's palace to occupy the empty space left from where The Crystal Palace once stood.

Following a brief historical overview of the Crystal Palace and the role it served within the area, participants will have the chance to draw and suggest their own utopian ideas for what a contemporary people's palace might look like and what services it might offer. By focusing our creative endeavours on a place of common interest and use, we will be encouraging the local community to engage with the history of their public space, deepening our understanding of people and the places they occupy, and how they came to be in the first place.

All workshop materials will be provided by the organisers.
