Youth Platform’s installation at GALA festival in Peckham Rye

Inspired by communities local to Peckham and South London, the installation, a pergola, was co-designed and curated with Youth Platform. The arched structure is layered with Batik, Ankara and other fabrics and textures that have histories in storytelling and craft based traditions. Once inside the space, visitors are invited to explore themes of community, mental health, and art.
