Spacehive said we are aiming too high so won't let this project go live therefore we have had to move to a different crowdfunding platform: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/buybackbrixton

What we'll deliver:

  • Buy Brixton Village & Market Row
  • Develop projects within the markets for community building and cultural awareness
  • Ensure these icnonic pieces of history remain a cultural focus for the local community and its visitors
  • Protect markets from losing their listed status
  • Work with local partners to develop business and enterpise training/projects

Why it's a great idea:

Brixton has changed. As detailed in the Voice newspaper 'black and Asian stall holders as well as their loyal customers who have patronised them since Windrush for Caribbean and African produce, are being systematically pushed out by astronomical commercial and residential property prices. Even spending a day in Brixton is becoming a different and less accessible experience for many who helped put it on the map in terms of culture and fun.' We want to reverse this trend before it is too late. Theresa May's Disparity Report and the David Lammy's Lammy Review has shown us that as a community the UK has a lot to do eradicate race inequality let's start here!

Steps to get it done:

  • Buy Brixton Village & Market Row

My Tribe Village, is a community organisation established to support the African diasporic family - including those from Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America - by promoting our culture and community and tackling race inequality & discrimination. We are going through the process of incorporating our organisation into a community benefit society which means we will be owned and managed by our members for the benefit of the wider community.
