Potent Whisper #OurBrixton (Spoken Word)‬ + RASPECT FYABINGHI - ANOTHER DAY

Brixton has seen a lot of change in recent years. Unfortunately not all of this change has been positive. Social housing is being demolished and huge amounts of local families are being evicted to make way for unaffordable private developments, our libraries and public services are under attack and we have had news that traders at the world famous Brixton Railway Arches are all to be evicted by Network Rail for “refurbishments”.
The above are examples of some of the changes that are often referred to as "progress" by those with power, but is this really the type of "progress" our community wants? Further, is this the type of progress that LONDON wants?

This video is the first arts piece taken from a new Multi-Arts community campaign, entitled #OurBrixton. #OurBrixton aims to:
✓Discuss and respond artistically to Brixton’s changing identity.
✓Inspire and support community action that challenges Brixton's changing identity.
✓Celebrate Brixton’s true/ original identity.
The campaign will consist of various arts pieces that will be created by both professional artists and young people from the community. #OurBrixton will be delivering FREE arts workshops in the community for young people to explore/ learn about important social issues and outcomes will come in form of:
Poetry/Spoken Word, Music, Street Theatre, Sculpture, Street Art, An interactive YouTube campaign + Much more!
This campaign stands in solidarity with the Reclaim: Brixton movement, that continues to be both a crucial driving force behind Brixton's community resistance and an inspirational example of Brixton's positive community spirit.
If you are interested in getting involved artistically, we would love to hear from you! Our email address is: OurBrixton@gmail.com
