Through our community programme London Printworks Trust aims to introduce the marvels of print to as many people as we can. As much as we love our print room there is a whole area of our organization dedicated to taking print out to new locations and groups.
One part of this is our involvement in Brixton Green. For those not aware, Brixton Green is a community redevelopment proposal set to be located in Somerleyton Road, right in the centre of Brixton. The development is to include a community hub, a creative hub and sustainably built housing. It is the creative hub that LPT would be a part of, helping to introduce more people to our work.
On Saturday 21st May the LPT team packed their printing gear and went out to join in with the Brixton Green’s Community Family Fun Day. The day was held at Dexter’s Adventure Playground and included some great dance performances, stalls from Brixton City Farm and people from many local organizations such as Black Cultural Archives, The Oval House Theatre and Loughborough Junction Action Groups.
It was a brilliant day, with over 850 attending the event. The LPT stand even experienced a few queues, with people ready to get messy in order to make their own flag inspired piece of bunting.
We’d like to thank all at Brixton Green for organizing the event, and inviting us to be a part of this very inspiring project.
