Peckham Space is pleased to announce the launch of a new permanent, public artwork on Peckham Square: Peckham Peace Wall by Garudio Studiage will celebrate the wall of post-it notes of love and respect for the area which grew on Rye Lane following the disorder of last year, and will be launched on 8 August 2012 to mark this one year anniversary.
Commissioned by Peckham Space with funding from Southwark Council’s Greener Cleaner Safer fund, the Peckham Peace Wall will comprise 4000 original post-it messages including those from London Mayor Boris Johnson and Leader of Southwark Council Peter John alongside those from residents. Each of these will be digitally hand-traced by artists Garudio Studiage working with young people from Peckham.
Up close, community members will be able to read the notes and re-find their own contribution within the piece which will span the 3m x 9m western wall of Peckham Square, SE15. These will also be interspersed with blank ‘notes’ onto which new comments can be made.
To coincide with this project, Peckham Space and Garudio Studiage have produced a limited edition print inspired by the Peckham Peace Wall, sales of which will help to fund our free Art Clubs in the future.
