John Piper: "Get involved in the Waddon Public Art Project"

Local Waddon resident John Piper has lived along Bramley Hurst for 12 years and wants to encourage local residents to get involved in the Waddon Public Art Project. He said:
An example of public art panels

"At a recent meeting of the Waddon Forum it was put forward to us that some public art would be around the area of the new leisure centre. So I am calling all local residents out there to get involved- it could be a mural, a local artists work or different things for different panels.Please do get involved as it'll be a great boost for Waddon- in particular for Purley Way residents!"

The Waddon Public Art Project will oversee the design and installation of public art for the development on the Purley Way. Croydon Council will commission artists to integrate public artworks into the development and are seeking volunteers who have a real understanding of the Waddon area and experience of how public art can make a positive impact on local communities. The community panel will assist the organisers to shape the project to make sure it connects with the local area as well as create inspirational landmarks that a new community can be proud of.

For more information or to be involved in the community panel please contact John at: johnkpiper@yahoo.co.uk
