PaP (People & Place)

PaP is a peer group for artists with monthly meet-ups happening across the New Forest, together carrying out creative investigations into the area and providing a forum of  support, sharing, caring and exchange to strengthen one another’s practice. We meet IRL to walk, sit, talk and often eat together. We explore practices of creative commoning,  forming new knowledge of the area and collective ways of being. PaP was initiated in 2019 by Laura Eldret as part of MTP (More Than Ponies) with support from a space.

In 2020 we collaborated on PaP Mail, in 2021 we were commission for Traversing Terrains. In early 2022 PaP artists will be coproducing of a ‘creative commoning’ print work that reflects on ways of collaboration, community economies, common licensing and co- production. There will also be an artists’ walk, talk and chew open to all.
