Calling all mural artists... there's a brief out for a small wall in the Elliott's Row Pocket Park that I manage, closing deadline 30 September, budget £1,000. If you've not yet discovered the park it's at the Elephant end of St George's Road and is rather lovely. More info about the space, a link to the brief and a link to a gallery of photos here: http://www.pocketpark.org.uk/
Please spread the word about the brief, and if you're interested in joining the friends group there's a sign up page on the website too.
Thanks, it's quite a satisfying turnaround with a budget of just £1,900 so far, and that was money from the generous donation from the failing bank of Rev Flowers. The approach used here to greening space managed through Mobile Gardeners CIC is closer to the spirit and techniques of guerrilla gardening than a lot of typical public space makeovers. It's an approach which can't easily be rolled out but is sometimes not given a chance to develop for the sake of a quick visible spruce so loved by most funders and fund raisers... but can be terribly wasteful with funding and short lived (I won't get into local examples, but I'm tempted).
