call for volunteers for post-riot community painting


Post-riot community painting

Some of us (local shopkeepers and local residents) want to make Parkstone Square (a turning off Rye Lane just south of Bournemouth Road)) look more beautiful by a community cleaning and painting event, probably in the last weekend of October. We’re inspired by Lekki Beach on Rye Lane, which showed that high quality design can use very basic and affordable materials (black gloss paint, white and black flock wallpaper) to stunning effect in Peckham now.

Royal Court comes to the Bussey building, Peckham!

Peckham Vision grew out of the campaign to draw attention to the potential of the Bussey building and the Copeland quarter site in the middle of the town centre which was threatened with demolition and full closure to town centre use. The historic Bussey building, and the site were saved, and have just gone on year by year demonstrating the potential we saw. Now that central part of Rye Lane, in and around Peckham Rye station, is showing how it can flower as a home for the burgeoning cultural and artistic enterprises in Peckham.

Now we have the exciting news that our work has helped to attract the Royal Court to Peckham for two months starting on 29 September. Details of this year’s performances and booking arrangements below. Performances are already being sold out! We look forward to continuing to work with the Royal Court and especially their work to open up these methods and experiences for the whole community. Read more of this post
