We hope that this piece will inspire young people to speak out against Injustice and use their voice for good.
So here it is...the finished mural by Breeze in Brixton.
The concept for this was based on a series of characters called Boniswa, one of which was painted in khayelitsha in Cape Town.
This piece fused that and paid tribute to the memoryof Olive Morris, a prominent Brixton Campaigner who in the 70's championed the causes of Black women, the homeless and many other issues.
We hope this piece will encourage the next generation to ' Say it Loud' and not be afraid to speak out against injustice wherever it occurs.
Watch This Space recently collaborated with South African Artist Breeze Yoko to produce a mural in Brixton.
The concept was based on Breeze's ' Boniswa' series and the spirit and legacy of Brixton Activist Olive Morris who Championed the Rights of Black people in the 70's.
Look out for the video to come soon.
South African artist Breeze Yoko has joined us to create a series of works in Brixton. At the Hall Of Fame Breeze worked on a quick piece based on a sketch. Check out his work on instagram @breezeyoko

Recently we visited Aylesbury Prison to work on a music and Art project there. The theme was built around restorative justice and positive thinking.
During the graf session the group of 6 were split into 2 groups. Group A were tasked with learning how to design in Blackbooks. Group B had to learn how to design on canvas. During the Afternoon they had to teach each other the skills they had learned in the morning.
This was a challenging session for them as many had not done any Art or had done little but they all managed to produce work. The work they have produced will be part of an Arts Award they are currently undertaking.
We also talked about the challenges for them personally on the outside and ways to overcome problems and goals to set for the future.
Thanks to all the inmates at Aylesbury Prison for putting time into this project.
