Young visions of Tottenham
Grainger, developer of the Apex House scheme and architects John McAslan and partners set a challenge to two local schools to create artwork for the site in Seven Sisters.
The working title of the project was "Young Visions of Tottenham."
Pupils from Northumberland Park Community School and Gladesmore took part and the results are outstanding.
Northumberland Park Community School
Northumberland Park Community School ran this initiative as part of the GCSE curriculum and incorporated it into their current Pop Art topic.
John McAslan and partners worked closely with the school, running workshops with the pupils and helping them develop their design ideas.
Northumberland Park Community School themed their artwork the concept of 'Tree generation' and 32 Year Nine students submitted 44 pieces of artwork.
Gladesmore Community School
Gladesmore Community School ran the programme as extra curricular activity and invited the Year Nine students to take part in a competition which will ran over the Christmas break. The young people were asked two questions:
- What does Tottenham mean to you?
- How can you express this visually?
17 year Nine students submitted artwork.
All the students artwork can be seen at the Apex House site in Seven sisters.
