Before & After

Dan Kitchener - Park Street

Since the creation of the Arts Quarter the transformation on street level has been nothing short of outstanding and created a lot of public and media attention for artists and organisers alike. Some fun can be had by using Google Street View around Park Street, Katherine Street and the roads that surround St. Georges Walk here is one example…

Do we even need a vote to decide which is best? Without shops or restaurants fillings these vacant plots blank hoarding is a reminder of urban decay or lack of development and interest. Street Artists should be encouraged to paint on these spaces to raise an areas profile and encourage people to return. I hope this campaign leaves a lasting impression on Croydon.
