Art Press has been commissioned by Historic England to make a film about the future of Croydon’s high street, as part of Historic England’s High Streets Heritage Action Zone initiative.
We’ve been working with local filmmaker Araba Aduah to discuss what we don’t like about the town centre, what we do, and what we want to see in the future. We’ve discussed our experiences and memories of the high street, and experimented with filming, audio work, and illustration to make our final film.
“We’ve been talking about what we want the future of the high street to look like. We want more green space and community space, and less decisions made about us, without us.”
