With our public voting campaign receiving over 1000 votes, we are pleased to announce that the selected organisation to take on our Community Residence Programme is the WOM Collective.
Having identified a need for affordable spaces for creatives to come together and work with communities, we are launching this programme in FUSEBOX, our new multi-arts venue on Kingston’s riverside. This project is funded by The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames Community Resilience Fund.
WOM Collective are a grassroots organisation of London based female artists, passionate about inspiring and empowering each other and our communities. Over the years, the collective has proudly been a part of numerous community projects, touching the lives of children, teens, and adults alike.
“Street art has had a profound and transformational impact on many of us, increasing our confidence, helping us build strong networks and new career pathways. We want to pay this forward. Join us in continuing this beautiful journey together. Let’s create a brighter future through art and community.”
WOM Collective are committed to supporting communities and young people, and we are thrilled to be able to offer a creative and affordable space for them to organise workshops, experiment and develop future projects.
Creative Youth is looking forward to building relationships with WOM, whilst offering the collective support and advice in key areas such a fundraising and establishing connections within the borough.
Known for their murals, paint jams and creative workshops, expect to see a wide variety of projects coming up over next year. Watch this space!
