Small Island Vibes is the public sharing of Tilting the Mirror, an intergenerational placemaking programme that uses arts and creativity to develop civic leadership so that people make meaningful changes to the places they live by reclaiming and activating community spaces. Since 2019 Tilting the Mirror has worked closely with artists and resident groups to support and learn from young people and elders in Peckham. This programme has generously been supported by The National Lottery Community Fund, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Local Trust Creative Civic Change. Peckham Platform is able to deliver this programme and many others due to the generous support from Arts Council England.
