Blue Hoarding project
Sponsored by Access Storage, City Plumbing, Harmonix & Leyland
The Streatham Festival Committee is keen to create a fantastic artistic mural working co-creatively with local schools and artists. This year, the organisers have the opportunity to paint a large mural on a hoarding on the corners of Penistone Road and Kempshott Road in Streatham, opposite Baldry Gardens. Our intention is to brighten up these street corners and welcome all who pass along Europe’s longest high street to visit our vibrant neighbourhood.
We are grateful to Access Storage and Precis Management Services Limited for enabling Streatham Festival to create this project as well as other supporters including City Plumbing, Harmonix & Leyland.
Progress to date:
A new outlook
Construction activity is well underway at the Blue Hoarding site, with cranes and huge machinery now features on the skyline. Closer to ground-level the scenery is also going to change within just a couple of weeks.
Project Sponsors, Harmonix and Leyland have generously sponsored and supplied all the paint, materials and equipment we need, and the team at City Plumbing are supplying manpower (and tea and biscuits!).
What’s happening now?
We are in production phase with Art4Space over the next 2 weeks, holding creative workshops, which are open to anyone who’d like to come and paint with us.
