For a number of years I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rich Mix – a cultural centre in the heart of East London on Bethnal Green road. Operating as a charity and social enterprise they offer a great programme of live music, film, dance, theatre, comedy, spoken word and a range of creative activities for people of all ages and all cultures. It’s very inclusive in the way it engages with the local and creative community in this part of London.
My work with them began in Summer 2014 when I was invited to create a visual arts programme to celebrate the world cup being held that year in Brazil. Showcasing the talents of stencil artist Daniel Melim and street art collective SHN (both based in Sao Paulo) the programme included the production of a permanent mural, a temporary exhibition which included animated projections as well as stencil and screen printing workshops working with local.
As part of my work with this project I produced an identity for the world cup project – Joga Bola, and . Since then I have continued to consult on Rich Mix’s on-going arts programme and to regularly design their leaflets, posters, signage and exhibition graphics.
