Young People bring colours to Toynbee Hall

Published: 8 Nov 2013


This week has been more colourful than usual at Toynbee Hall, as we hosted our Inspire session and welcomed our young people to get involved in painting murals, transforming our dull walls into something colourful, imaginative and inspiring. For two days our crew of young people, worked with professional East London artists to bring this half term project into life!

With charcoal and pastels they sketched out their ideas, before unleashing their potential in bright colours across the walls. Using the space to express their growth and development into becoming young adults, the large scale street art murals display the young people’s skill, imagination and their own story.

We lost count of how many people stopped on their way past to tell us how much they loved the work of our young street art crew. Their art work has done a lot to brighten up the area. The work is a great success, and shows off the talent and creativity of the members of Inspire.

We would like to thank our young artists for their fantastic murals, and look forward to admiring them on our way to Toynbee Hall.

The Inspire project supports young people aged 14+ who are encouraged to challenge themselves with new activities, to seek new opportunities and to engage with the local community.
