This project would work in collaboration with local construction companies and projects in North London (Tottenham) where Susie Olczak's studio is. It is an area with a high degree of social deprivation so we hope that bringing exciting inclusive culture would be beneficial. We would then run outreach to support the main display of artworks on a Sunday hanging from the crane when not in use. The works would be curated and commission around four themes that are currently very critical in Tottenham/London/UK and globally. These are also issues that have been made worse by the pandemic, aiding conversations around recovery. 1) Sustainability 2) Mental Health 3) Diversity 4) Voted for by local community We would invite artists to make work to fit these themes and would engage local artists as Tottenham has a number of art spaces. We would also invite local schools and organisations to submit works to be considered or would engage them in outreach as part of the project.
