In this live project we will partner up with Chris Bailkoski and Chi Emecheta from PROFORMA ,LongSight Art Space
The project entails mapping the Crowcroft Park, working with the local community to revitalise the green space, and proposing ideas to improve the region's fragile environment by introducing orchards. Activities for the initiative will involve modelling the chosen portion of the park as well as community organisation meetings and workshops. The project would conclude with an interactive session and an exhibition at the Longsight Art Space. In addition to providing an opportunity to develop mapping and surveying abilities, the project would be a great way to engage with the neighbourhood.
