Yes Make

Artists

Yes Make specialise in public spaces and community projects in London and beyond. 

Creating community embedded projects, Yes Make use locally sourced materials and reused fallen trees and milling processing for green building techniques,. Think sculptures, benches, public poetry, archways, planters, notice boards, murals, markets, street art and much more. 

Yes Make believe in community empowerment through the construction of public spaces which inspire and are inspired by nature. Their process of ‘making’ in community spaces fosters engagement from a place of curiosity rather than giving unsolicited attention.

Aiming to mitigate the Climate Emergency, both locally and globally, they encourage outdoor education and facilitate low carbon transport and renewable energy whilst promoting creativity and play for people of all ages. Yes Make’s construction techniques work to lower reliance on carbon-intense materials, encourage low-carbon alternatives and recycle materials wherever possible. These techniques culminate in what is known as a Circular Economy, with the ambition of a Zero Waste society where products are designed for a lifetime as opposed to being disposable.
