TippingPoint Funds Trashcatchers' Carnival
On 29th June 2009 the TippingPoint Commission selected from 178 applications nationally the Trashcatchers' Carnival in Tooting as one of 4 projects to be funded in 2010. The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Miliband, presented £20,000 to Project Phakama and Emergency Exit Arts to lead a year long project in Tooting alongside Transition Town Tooting to use art, carnival, celebration and the collective ingenuity of all the community to create a large scale promenade on the 2010 summer solstice - from Trash! Using recycling as a metaphor, (and as piloted at June 13th BATCA Funday) the aim is to build a vision of a low-energy future for Tooting and have a lot of fun in the process.
