The AF's education programme, the Urban Pioneers, is travelling to Croydon this winter. We are looking to recruit a group of young people aged 16 to 19 who live or study in the area, to take part in series of ten creative workshops. Led by an array of architects, planners, artists and designers, the workshops will critically explore Croydon's architecture and built environment in its widest sense.
Each of the workshops will contribute to a new publication discussing Croydon's built environment - The Suburban Press. The Suburban Press was first established at Croydon College in the 1970s, by Malcolm McLaren (of Sex Pistols fame), and Jamie Reid. We're going bring it back to the college by having it designed by the BA Graphic Design students who currently study there.
To apply to take part you will need to answer the question: 'What, to you, is the most interesting building or space in London?' You can write about anything from Buckingham Palace, to the Whitgift Centre, to the top deck of a bus, as long as you explain why you think it's interesting. To apply, send your answer to Education Manager Tom Keeley at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 11 February, 5pm.
