Global Street Art 2015

The Global Street Art festival, which festoons walls across a neighbourhood with brilliant art is working with Londonist to find a new home, so they are putting a shout out to communities across London to find the best bid. Londonist says:

If you think a street art festival would do your neighbourhood good, and you know local groups who are prepared to help, then email with your nomination and a summary of why you think your community could benefit in 50-100 words. 

Deadline for receipt of nominations is 5pm on Friday 1 August. The best, most feasible nominations will be shortlisted and the public will decide who gets it. Then everyone’s invited!

Could Brockley do a Qatar? Is #Newisham the new Rio? Will street art do for Deptford what European Capital of Culture status is doing for Riga? We've got lots of crappy walls in need of a legacy effect - bring graffiti home!
