Accessibility is vital to our being able to inspire people to want to learn new skills and develop their confidence. This unique opportunity to be co-located with two other local arts organisations will give us new energy, and improved connections through sharing and developing our resources and audiences. Together we will be able to showcase a wide range of talents and excellence in the arts. Brixton Green is an important component in the sustainability of our collective futures.”

Lorna Dallas-Conte, Executive Director, London Printworks Trust

“The Brixton Green proposal is a chance for the people of Brixton to lead the development a large site in central Brixton in a way that will benefit the community for generations. It is a chance for the community to support and strengthen our assets including our schools, our voluntary groups, our arts organisations, and our neighbourhoods. One of the aspects I love most about it is that it is inclusive. All the various communities in Brixton are able to join to help make this happen. I, like many of the people involved in Brixton Green, are passionate about this because we have seen the difference poor choices have made to the lives of people we know. We know there is a better way.”

Brad Carroll, Director, Brixton Green
