We've teamed up with Hackney Council this year to take part in the Discover Young Hackney Festival!

Through a series of workshops with young Hackney residents we've been exploring issues close to their hearts and giving them free artistic reign on the walls of Westgate Street by Netil Market, this week.

In partnership with the talented Guido Palmadessa, we are working on-site this weekend to create a mural celebrating the diversity of Hackney’s young people, taking pride in their creativity and symbolising the positivity and growth that can come from a strong community. In the mural we've even included the portraits of some young Hackney residents that participated in our workshops!

Drop by anytime this weekend to chat to us about the project or check photos out on our Instagram.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Paint the Change is proud to be partnered with Hackney Council, Discover Young Hackney and Second Home.
