Tradeptford is a local platform hosting events and debate, exploring the theme of local identity, gentrification and role of the citizen in Deptford, South East London. And a new compound word I invented!
Over the course of 6 months r and test a new market forum for Deptford. A new typology that aims to position the artist/architect as a lever for positive social change, the output being a way to give people a voice and ultimately change the equation art = gentrification to, art = local resilience.
Each market developed new themes to engage different demographics in Deptford, to both gain understanding and develop evidence for a future citizen led neighbourhood plan – delivered by Deptford Neighbourhood Action. Through the direct participation in each forum, local residents working together with local artists and designers will attempt to unpick the impact of gentrification in Deptford.
Creating the identity based from the strength of Enzo Mari's table structures which formed the foundation and surface for the workshop lunches and debates. This became a logo and featured across all materials.
