We’re getting towards the end of the Summer. How did you find it? Are you ready for more of that heat? Or do you prefer this green and pleasant land, green and pleasant?? We spent a couple of beautiful, very hot and sweaty days in Brockwell Park, bringing SWEATSHOP to the people of Lambeth Country Show. My fellow artist was delighted to push our bicycle overlocker (an overlocker attached to a bicycle, transported by tricycle) up the park...

Have you been to put installation in Market Row yet? It’s on until June 26th artist @ououmuo has created a beautiful tribute to Olive Morris, this is not something you want to miss. #olivemorris @voicesofthearchive...
As the first Make It in Brixton fabrication, artist Oumou Longley has been invited to create a bespoke installation in Brixton Village to celebrate the life and legacy of Olive Morris; Voices of the Archive invites you to share in the legacy of the Black British activist.
Born in Jamaica in 1952, Olive moved to London aged 9. She went on to make fierce contributions to British squatters’ movements and Black women’s groups throughout the 60’s and 70’s. Here her legacy is woven together from oral histories found in the Olive Morris Collection at Lambeth Archives, first recorded by the Remembering Olive Collective in 2009.
Playing out from Universal Roots’ historic soundsystem, memories of those who knew Olive present themselves tuning between radio static, original music and immersive sound design. The work is a testament to the vibrant community that speaks Olive back to life. Together their words generate a layered conversation that resists limiting representations of Blackness. In Voices of the Archive we remember that Black history is living, changing and shared. The exhibition will be live from Friday the 17th of June to Sunday the 26th of June in Unit 14E Brixton Village.
Launched in 2021, Make It in Brixton is the manifestation of Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone. We exist to create spaces to meet, network and collaborate, sparking exciting conversations and supporting our creative community to grow. The quarterly online magazine explores timely themes through continuous conversations with artists, designers, makers and thinkers.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.
Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
