Brockley Street Art Festival has already created more than 30 bright and colourful works of art on unloved parts of Brockley and the surrounding areas.

This project was funded on 01 Sep 2016!

A small group of artists - Brockley Street Artists will continue the good work over the next twelve months, taking on the extra walls and painting sites that we couldn't reach during the festival.

What we'll deliver:

  • Touch up any damaged or fading artworks from the last two years
  • Add colour to unloved areas, cover anti social graffiti.
  • Paint as many new murals locally in the next 12 months as possible

Why it's a great idea:

Art in the streets has been proven to have a positive effect on the community. By bringing new people into the area it can help boost trade. It lifts spirits, gives the people a sense of ownership and adds extra character and a sense of independence to the neighbourhood. Adding art to shop fronts is also a cheap and effective way to spruce up tired and neglected areas.

Steps to get it done:

  • 6 new murals by the close of 2016
