The mentorship programme looked for local people interested in developing and showcasing their creative talents, and in creating a series of fun, vibrant and liberating cultural experiences in north Bexley. Participants in the programme were not required to have formal arts training.
The artists took part in various workshops and received a bursary to create new art works reflecting the local community. The result is a celebration of Erith, the London Borough of Bexley and the friendships made. Find out more at
