DIY Art Show

(Launched April 2020)

An open-source activity born in the midst of the London lockdown with the aim to bring people together in a time of uncertainty. The original show happened in April 2020 and had an incredible positive impact on the streets morale. For the second event the instructions of how to do a DIY Art Show were shared and multiple streets around the world got involved on the same day. Images of previous events and instructions on how to host your own show can be viewed below. This is also available as a workshop for schools and groups/individuals who are interested.
