We will empower the residents of Haringey to take ownership of their artwork and champion their community. We will do this through the following process.
Artist Engagement - Bud Studio will use its network to identify artists to collaborate with. We will focus on local and emerging artists who would benefit the most from paid opportunities and visibility.
Workshops - We will work with selected artists to develop a workshop programme that allows pupils at local schools, young people or adults the opportunity to be creative. The workshops will be delivered by Bud Studio and will act as a catalyst for the artist to design the artwork, defining themes and aesthetics desired by locals.
Community Engagement - After the artwork is finalised, residents will be able to feedback on the design through an open call. The artist will then amend the design to align with the residents' feedback.
Installation of Artwork - The artist will install the artwork with support from Bud Studio.
What we'll deliver:
- Deliver 3 workshops
- Design and Install 2 large murals
- Design and install 4 small murals
Why it's a great idea:
Residents are feeling alienated by the current period of development taking place in Tottenham. We want to give the local residents an opportunity to represent their community with pride. Unlike previous borough wide regeneration we want to ensure that Haringey’s sense of community isn’t just maintained, but heightened through this period of change. We will use art and workshops to exhibit Haringey's identity and bring people together. This will help add value to local businesses and organisations whilst improving their environment.
Steps to get it done:
- Buying the materials for workshops
- Planning and facilitating workshops
- Facilitating further community engagement
- Confirming walls donated by property owners and organisations
- Paying artists for design work
- Paying artists to install artwork
- Paying for materials and booking access equipment for installs
