We love it when green and creativity come together, to create something truly innovative. That’s why we’re delighted to be supporting North London artist, Anya Beaumont, as she works on Mapping Muswell Hill, an exciting new project that will see Anya creating a series of new works out of waste paper.

Right now, Anya is calling for donations of waste paper – from a scrap piece of paper with a doodle, to a shopping list, a child’s drawing, or a note left hurriedly on the kitchen table. Any paper that would otherwise end up being recycled or, in the rubbish bin.

Specifically, she is looking for contributions of waste paper from the community local to London N10, to make Mapping Muswell Hill a truly local work of art.

“The kind of paper I’m after is anything that has been made personal in some way – the kind of thing that could have only been made by that individual but has no real use or significance after the event. It would be lovely to be able to use paper from many different N10 residents – and the more people contribute, the more the project will be representative of the area – and not just a map made up of streets and images but snippets from peoples lives who live there.”

Anya Beaumont, Artist.

 When completed, Mapping Muswell Hill will go on display at Muswell Hill Library.


What can I donate?

You can donate any waste paper including:

  • Shopping lists
  • Children’s drawing
  • Doodles
  • Notes

Please note: Anya is not looking for old newspapers or junk mail, etc, unless they have been drawn or written on. Also, please remember not to donate any paper with personal/private information.
