Graffiti Battle at Palatine Road Car Park August 17th 2014

‘Graffiti Battle’ Palatine Road Car Park on the 17th August 2014.
Despite the weather on Sunday members of The Revoe and Central Drive area community turned out for a graffiti event with a difference.
Mr Dee and Boz Phillips – Last legs Community Arts Organisation, received funding from Friends of Muir Housing and the Area Forum, earlier this year for a graffiti event they called ‘Graffiti Grannies’. Mr Dee worked with a group of older people last year to create a graffiti art wall in the grounds of Lytham Hall and the idea was a hit with the participants. This time the two artists decided to invite a younger group of people to do ‘battle’ against an older group and recruited graffiti artist TeaOne to work with the younger group.

On Sunday the ‘older’ (over 40’s) group of residents turned out in force to battle the younger (under 18s) group. On the day everyone battled with the weather.
‘A picture paints a thousand words’ and here are those words in paint.

We love working with Club2Go. Fantastic and dedicated people who offer activities to young people in areas where there is little or no access to arts and sports during the holidays.

The young participants love the Posca pens that were kindly donated to us by them earlier this year
