Situated Ecologies

Artist Helen Edwards will collaborate with Modern Art Oxford to lead a series of free art-making sessions at Cutteslowe Community Centre from June to August. Drawing on Helen’s 20 years of experience working in Cutteslowe and her keen interest in intercultural exchange and ecological exploration, community members will be invited to celebrate the natural environment around the centre within each creative session. The workshops will engage members of all ages and backgrounds, including the Minnows early years group, the Family Art Club, the Cutteslowe Larder, and the Cutteslowe Seniors group. Visitors to each session will be invited to co-create a new sign in celebration of 75 years of Cutteslowe Community Centre.
