Experimental Art Project Space in New Cross Gate
Greetings From New Cross Gate is a community art project conceived and coordinated by hARTslane and kindly supported by The Lottery Fund.
In the old days, people would buy a postcard to proudly tell their friends about their exciting visit. New Cross Gate is currently not on the tourist map of London but its rich history dates back to 1086. Artists, children, locals, have all contributed a unique visual interpretation for a new postcard for New Cross Gate. All entries were part of the Greetings From New Cross Gate photography exhibition where 105 images were shown in the same A4 format.
The Greetings From New Cross Gate Postcard Exhibition was a true celebration of New Cross Gate. The opening on Saturday 11th June from 5 to 8pm welcomed the local community of New Cross Gate and beyond to enjoy a day that brought together local pride: art, photography, history, music by Jona Overground and Short & Curlies, food by Wandercrust Pizza and more; while children and their families could enjoy creating their very own NCG postcards.
During the exhibition in hARTslane, from 11-26 June, visitors had the opportunity to vote for their favourite photographs. The 10 most voted for, were transformed into 25000 postcards of New Cross Gate and distributed widely through local shops and sent worldwide by proud New Cross Gate lovers.
