Our young adults along with Youth Platform Coordinators Farrah and Ellie will create an installation that combines Cyanotype (a slow-reacting, economic and distinctively blue photographic printing technique) with large sensory objects made from recycled materials. This year’s installation is supported by partners Flat Time House and co-designed with artist Melanie Issaka. 

Founded in 2016, GALA is an independent South London festival celebrating dance music’s lineage in Peckham Rye Park that champions originators, innovators and artists.
