Are you into mural painting and graffiti? Can you visualize your identity? How would you define home?

Are you 18-25 years old, into art, and grew up or based in North Kensington/West London? Then Shubbak invites you for an opportunity to join award-winning Casablanca based street artist Mehdi Annassi for a free 2-day workshop on April 13th and 14th.

In this workshop, we will be discovering, hands-on, how street art can bring a community together, and how public space can be used to express our identities and feelings. Nicknamed Petit Larache, the Golborne Road has long been at the centre of Moroccan identity in London. Together with residents and community groups, the artist will delve into its history and scenes of everyday life. Mehdi will be creating a new public mural inspired by these reflections and interactions during Shubbak Festival this summer!

Spaces are limited. Tell us a bit about yourself and why you’d like to join by 06.04.2019 to: taghrid@shubbak.co.uk

Lunch and (London) travel expenses will be covered.
