Erith Unity – Art Project

Bexley Community Safety Partnership (BCSP) worked closely with Youth Unity CIC, as part of an ongoing approach to reducing violence in the local area, through this funding Youth Unity worked to install an amazing piece of artwork into the community of Erith.
 
Youth Unity worked with a local artist and youth worker, Cizeone to create this amazing 15-meter mural in Erith, which is located on the underpass beneath the bridge at Bronze Age Way, next to Bexley College.  Youth Unity also engaged the local community payback team to assist us in preparing the area ready for the artist to commence the piece. This contribution was instrumental in giving the team a sense of pride in their local area and was quoted to say “how great it was to be part of something and have the local community come and talk to them instead of walking past”. 

The message is a very positive one and has already received great feedback from the local community.  During the creation of the artwork we successfully engaged with many people from the community that stopped to find out more about the artwork. 

Special thanks to the community payback team and all their help!
