See No Evil returned to Bristol last week, creating the UK’s largest permanent Street Art project featuring music stages, a pop-up gallery and live painting...with Creative Youth Network getting into the thick of it!
The week before the event, members of Youth for Youth and the Station Drivers came to Nelson Street to photograph the work in its development to be included on the See No Evil App for smart phones. We managed to take some amazing images of the new pieces of art which will be included on the App and the See No Evil website.
During the Saturday, our young people promoted The Station to the busy audience who came to see the live painting at The Island. Our volunteer graffiti artist Gavin created a show-stopping piece of art that read ‘Station’ while our young people helped to add our SHH stencil to the bottom of the piece. While the painting was happening, we stickered everyone we could see with Station stickers and gave them information about the launch and the building.
Sunday was billed as the Family Day, with Nelson Street transformed into a musical hive of busking pitches. Creative Youth Network was there in full force with a range of performers to entertain the crowds. Molly & Joe Roberts pulled in a crowd while later in the afternoon Vgo and Thandie joined forces with their beat boxing and MC skills...all done without the use of an amp or microphone. Well Done guys!
See No Evil was a great event that highlighted Bristol’s heritage of Street Art and Music. With The Station due to open in October, we look forward to next year’s event where Creative Youth Network hope to get even more involved.
