Newham Community Project
Community Awareness Workshop
Green Street, Upton Park
Spray can over banner

Young people were encouraged to discuss the problems they see around them in their own community, such as crime, alcoholism, drugs, etc. They also came up with ideas and proposals to help erradicate these problems, and then worked on concepts and designs to produce a set of banners to be used by the local police.

We had the pleasure to work with the local community team to engage with this group of young people to help them express their feelings and create the banners using a mixed media approach.

The local councillors also joined us to listen to the problems and ideas highlighted by the youth, in a really great day of community cohesion.
