Graffiti Art project

Elstow under pass Art project

 

Graffiti is often seen as unsightly and offensive.

Our Graffiti/Art project - is an ongoing project used as and when the need arises.

Previous areas we have worked on include the under passes connecting Wixams to Wilstead,  Wixams to Elstow , Dog kennel walk in Dunstable, & Kempston Youth Centre

 

Wixams to Wilstead underpass & Wixams to Elstow underpass

The projects ran for one week for approximately 3hrs per day. Young people were able to work with a professional street artist who helped young people explore their artistic side and learn how to produce legal street art to benefit the community.

 

Dog kennel walk

Working in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council this project is aimed to improve the look, feel and safety of the area at Dog Kennel Walk. Graffiti is often seen as unsightly and is often offensive; this has been the case along the foot path between Dunstable & Houghton Regis. Approximately 150 meters of wall had been defaced and along with the overgrown vegetation made the area very dark and susceptible to crime.

 

Kempston Youth Centre

Kempston youth centre is a large centre offering an indoor basketball court, table tennis, a large kitchen, numerous social spaces and a music recording studio.

This project aimed to clear up the unsightly graffiti on the walls and alongside efforts from the council make the walk way wider and more visible via CCTV to promote a much safer route for people to use.

·         Painting & decorating – general tiding of the site internally.

·         Art projects – including graffiti art on the court walls.

 

It is hoped  that further projects like these will continue throughout Bedfordshire to improve the appearance of local communities that have been affected by offensive and unsightly graffiti. This allows young people to make a positive contribution to their community whilst giving them some ownership of their community.

ECM Outcomes: Enjoy & achieve, Making a positive contribution, staying safe and being healthy.
