Zero Degrees skate park in New Haven

On March 7th Positive Arts was invited down to the grand opening of the Zero Degrees skate park in the BigParksProject at Peace Haven.

the day was packed with skating events along with many other activities happening all over the park with a new children’s play ground, new community cafe, public stalls and educational workshops about the local Archaeology .

Our focus for the day was to paint the back of the half moon ramp and to involve as many young people in creating the graffiti mural.

In total we had over 25 young people taking part throughout the day, below are photos of us all in action with the sun setting on us at the end of a great day!

Harlow Foyer graffiti workshop

We have just finished a 3 day graffiti workshop working at Occasio House (Harlow Foyer) creating works of art on two walls in there training room using mixed mediums.
With over 15 young people involved in all the stages from the design to finishing the murals.

the concept for the first wall titled “choose your Destiny” was to send a message that the life choices you make decides you own destiny.

the concept for the second wall titled “be wise” is of a fantasy woodland with a colourful wise owl centering the wall.
