We have teamed up with The Lounge (@loungebrixton) to showcase local, young and up and coming artists in an exhibition programme throughout the year.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our first artist Cherise Hewitt is a black British artist with a Caribbean background who started art at the young age of 9. She studied social work at Canterbury Christ Church University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She rediscovered her love for art in late 2019 whilst completing her studies and started experimenting with digital art due to her lack of resources. Her day to day work focuses on African culture and representation of the black community.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Looking for a new way to tackle mass production and consumerism?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Harvest Workshop is about unpicking and re-evaluating this relationship to the world. Alice Holloway is a bespoke clothing designer and maker, who will guide you with stories and dialogue through the process of 'unmaking' mass production.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You will be taught to carefully and lovingly take apart garments that were never made for you, in order to create a raw material fertile with new possibilities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The process of recycling could be a new frontier of consumerism, you put in something you don't want and mass production gives you back something, you still probably don't want. Or it could be the beginning of an entirely new relationship to making objects.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happening on Saturday 9 October at 3-5pm - visit inbrixton.org to register for free event tickets.

“A society grows when people plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” (Greek Proverb)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every time you go through your door at the start or any time of day, you will encounter people from diverse backgrounds. Whether this is on the street, on the bus/train/tram, at work, church, supermarket, gym, etc. Whether you speak to them or not, can you be mindful and intentional about what vibe you want to give them?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In this workshop, as we come to the end of ‘Space In Between’ events we will come together as a community literally and symbolically to prepare the soil and plant our anti-racism seeds. We will take our seeds home to water, nurture and grow alongside the work we need to do to become more anti-racist. I visualise interaction with our seeds to encourage them to germinate and when they do, that we will look after them and that they will remind us to be aware, mindful and intentional about the vibe we want to give to those who are different to us every moment of every day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This promises to be a powerful community event that will bring us together to commit to being more anti-racist and to care for those at most risk of racism.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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.
