When & Where:

Location: Incubator One
Arts Work of the Future Tate Exchange, Tate Modern, London 

What Growing Space will be doing:

A collaborative project about local collection and sustainable, communal space.

This project is the adaptation of a greenhouse in an indoor environment, raising questions about sustainability. Since it is locally sourced with non-specialist materials from recycling circuits, it is aimed to be easy to build its own, as a modular framework that can be replicated by anyone.

The modularity of the space provides an expanding and growing capacity backed up by the plants growing in it, creating an intimate and pleasant atmosphere, in which the air is filtered, providing a cleaner environment to be in.

This adaptable space rethinks design as a collective and evolving activity that can be shared and used between the members/builders.

Programme & Activities:

We will be constructing, developing and adapting the space throughout the week.  The space will be constructed from cardboard tubes, loose cardboard and plastic bottles, collected from local areas.

The public are invited to help in the construction and re-organisation of the space, or to donate waste plastic bottles to add to the space.

This is a highly collaborative space that will be used for growing microgreens and seeds and will continually adapt to house the talks, workshops and activities of neighbouring groups.
