DEPTFORD X: A Load of Rubbish; Play; High Street Habitats

Sir Steve Bullock  is joining artists, young artists and supporters to open the Deptford X 2010 education project

Posted: 10/03/2022


As part of Deptford X, 100 pupils from local schools worked to create art for unusual places.

A Load of Rubbish – Refuge Trucks around Deptford

Lead artist Mark Titchner used photographs taken by students from Deptford Green School, exploring the local environments, to create a series of images that have been reproduced on the side of three refuge trucks based in Deptford.

Play – Hoardings by Waldron Centre and Fordham Park

Taking the theme of ‘play’ as a starting point, artists Amanda Egbe and Rastko Novakovic engaged a group of year 7 pupils from Deptford Green School to create a series of banners. The images, created through a collaborative process of sharing, reflect that imagination, creativity and play are instantaneous when given space to explore.The artists are currently creating the Waldron Panorama for display in the Waldron Centre Piazza featuring previously unseen images created by the young artists who took part in Play.

High Street Habitats – Waldron Centre

Bridget Lycett-Smith with pupils from years 3 and 4 Tidemill Primary School, have created a series of interwoven environments based on their observations and feelings about Deptford Market. The participants took inspiration from nature’s ‘sculptors’ — creatures such as bees, birds and spiders who use natural or found materials to create a habitat.

LEAN members are warmly invited to Join the Mayor at the Private View  of A Load of Rubbish; Play; High Street Habitat for refreshments, Creekside Artists drawing marathon and a short film.
