24TH - 30TH JUNE 2019

7 days on the ground working through the London heatwave, kicking off with certified scaffold training. Each day another section of this mammoth wall to work on meeting new faces who have travelled down to volunteer for the week along the way


The mural was part of a guided bike tour for new visitors to meet and greet the artists and learn more about the community and our ties to north africa, we even featured on arabia - wide media and TV. Special thanks to Taghrid Choucair-Vizoso for producing such an epic collaboration + to Mehdi Annassi for allowing us to be part of this incredible legacy
