JOIN US FOR DIY REGENERATION @ CAMDEN ARTS CENTRE, WEDNESDAY 19 AUGUST, 7.00-8.30PM


DIY REGENERATION IS COMING TO CAMDEN ARTS CENTRE.

JOIN US IN THE ATRIST STUDIO AT CAMDEN ARTS CENTRE ON WEDNESDAY THE 19 AUGUST, 7.00 - 8.30PM TO SEE THE WORK PRODUCED DURING THE RESIDENCY AND HAVE A DRINK WITH US TO CELEBRATE THE CONCLUSION OF THE PROJECT.

During June, July and August 2009 DIY REGENERATION was roaming the King's Cross area on the look out for active and activist residents, workers and commuters of King's Cross who make a difference to this area. The King's Cross redevelopment area is one of the largest inner city regeneration schemes in Europe and is confronting residents and users with large scale changes and top-down politics.

DIY REGENERATION was looking at the changes that are initiated and undertaken by individuals and groups on a day-to-day basis. We have been collecting tips and tricks on how to regenerate the area using local small scale and bottom up initiatives.

DIY REGENERATION useed the FOLK FLOAT - a restored and revamped bright blue milk float, which housed the project while on site in Kings Cross. The float was used as a mobile workshop space, billboard, archive and on-site office. All tips, advise and slogans were collected in poster format. The posters were produced ad hoc, and displayed on the roaming float on-site and on line at www.diyregeneration.net.

Following the collection and publishing period on site, DIY REGENERATION has now return to Camden Arts Centre with an installation using the outcomes from the tour. Join us for drinks at Camden Arts Centre on Wednesday the 19th of August 2009 from 7.00 - 8.30pm.

DIY REGENERATION" is a project by public works as part of Junction: A series of artist's projects for King's Cross, commissioned by Camden Arts Centre and supported by Bloomberg and the Wellcome Trust.
