Croytopia is the brainchild of Richard DeDomenici and Jess Mabel Jones. It's a new kind of video project where you not only create the content, but you are the content!
Watch the trailer here.
You are invited to recount on camera important and interesting personal facts and memories, triggered by specific locations in Croydon. These will be uploaded to an interactive map and become part of the exhibition at Turf Projects.
Croytopia is a way of preserving memories and social history. Over time we hope it will be useful for town planners and historians. We are particularly interested in receiving submissions from people of different generations who have memories about the same place. Could that be you and someone else in your family?
‘Jess Mabel Jones makes you look at the world in a different way. Remarkable.’ The Independent
