Croydon College Level 2 Art & Design and Creative Media students have been working on a fantastic project throughout the festive season, ‘Dreaming of a Green Christmas’, as part of their studies.

The students were given the opportunity to work on a real brief in partnership with external company, Veolia Waste Management, to create an interactive art installation display across South London. This was to help the students develop their communication, leadership and presentation skills. The task at hand was to use recyclable materials for a Christmas themed installation, to educate the public on the damage of overconsumption of packaging, particularly around the Christmas period. Veolia has recently selected the final piece, which is a Christmas tree.

Now that the project has been completed, students will be proudly showcase their work across South London. Here’s a list of where you can catch a glimpse, and when they’ll be over the next couple of weeks:

Sutton, Friday 6 December, 10-2pm at Cheam Christmas Village

Merton, Tuesday 10 December at Wimbledon Plaza

Kingston, Wednesday 11 December at the Memorial Gardens

Croydon, Thursday 19 December at Croydon High Street

If you’re visiting any of these areas on these dates, then please come along in support of our outstanding students!
