We first met Jason back in 2010, during the lead up to the 11th anniversary of the Brixton Bomb. A local artist who has worked on several local projects in Brixton, including the Brixton bridge, we were hoping to run a project in partnership with local schools to discuss hate crime and produce a mural to go on the side of the Iceland Store, Brixton.
Sadly the cuts happened, the promise of funding from Lambeth Council dried up and the project has been put on hold. To add to our disappointment another piece of art has appeared on the Iceland Store wall in the space that we had earmarked for our own. The good thing is the plaque that marked the site of the Brixton Bomb has been replaced, and located higher up on the wall so that it is no longer hidden by the Iceland Cages that are often left outside the store. Our schools project may be on hold for the time being, but it will happen eventually.
