Lambeth Made’s Youth JAM in the Park was a young people family hip-hop and performance festival created and led by young people. It happened in Myatt’s Fields Park in July 2019. Now, some of that creativity is moving into the heart of Brixton, at the Civic Centre.
Three fantastic Lambeth graffiti artists sprayed boards representing the themes of the event. Peace. Love. Unity. Now they’re welcoming people back into the centre.
Pixie, one of the artists, told us what her theme means to her:
“To me, Unity is knowing we are all connected, knowing that together we can create a positive environment by taking actions no matter how small we think they are. Even just smiling at someone can change the whole atmosphere – we are all one.”
Other artist included DSIRE and RIZE who have remained at the forefront of Hip Hop culture with their pioneering street art.
