#stockwellhalloffame updates

Today we looked at the progression of #stockwellhalloffame which will be finished soon. The walls are being prepped for the artists to create work on.
Thanks to network homes, sw9housing, Kingsbury construction and rock Townsend architects for their excellent work.






At #bookstopbrixton

At #bookstopbrixton we have been working overtime with a new delivery of books which we have been distributing to the community.
We have  also been transforming the space next to us by taking out the composters and installing growing beds for food which we will be planting shortly. #bookstopbrixton will be moving there shortly.

Art from watch this space project

We recently visited Lion house in Holborn which is showing the art created by young people from our project in 2013.
Back then we met every Thursday at Notre Dame community centre on the Notre Dame estate and made art from recycled materials.
The pieces on show at Lion House were part of a series we worked on at the end of the project.
Thanks to Gary Pate for organising the show
