Brixton Green: Community Family Fun Day

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.

About London Printworks Trust

London Printworks Trust is the centre of excellence for textile print. Our passion has continued for twenty years since establishing ourselves as a charity to encourage professional artists, designers and emerging talent to learn, to share ideas, to produce new work and to fulfil their creative potential. Through our specialist hand printing equipment and workshop facilities we support and nurture creativity in people from the local community of Brixton, and across London. We are developing a new programme of residency places, courses, talks and new open access in response to the changes to funding. We appreciate and thank the support from our Board, Volunteers and Freelancers, without whom we would not have survived the changes to our funding. Continued support from The Leverhulme Trust and Lambeth also helps us to make a difference.
