We believe that libraries and sound systems are important social spaces for learning and joy as well as activism and protection. For our 2022 Summer Programme Yes Make have created a temporary structure, on Peckham Square. The structure holds a free access Library that includes poetry, fiction and art texts as well as a sound system activated by a series of live music performances.

Yes Make work closely with local communities and care about the impact on our environment. Because of this, timber in the structure comes from locally fallen trees and as a result, reduces waste and supports our local economy.

Join us to read, listen and share ideas. The programme of activities is suitable for adults, young people and children. Please see full programme here. Check back regularly to see how to join in.

Small Island Vibes is made possible by the generous support of Southwark’s High Street Recovery Fund, Create Civic Change and Arts Council England.
