The old Angel public house at 354 Coldharbour Lane is soon to reopen as ’key community space, after The Brick Box negotiated a six month trial use of the building.
Brick Box are already a well established concern in nearby Brixton Village (Granville Arcade) and describe themselves as a “‘ground up’ arts organisation and community movement made up of artists, dreamers, hopers and no hopers.”
The group’s aims over the following six months are to:
- Provide a welcoming, inspiring and safe space for people
- Build an artistic community
- Offer local people opportunities to curate and host events
- Experiment with a varied and exciting programme
