Young Peoples Graffiti Workshop

Arkade Graphics ran workshops for young people in Coffee Hall, Milton Keynes . During these workshops the young people produced designs which were then recreated on a large wall on Jonathans (road) Coffee Hall.

“We worked with Busy Bees nursery, Milton Keynes Council of Voluntary Organisations, Make a Difference Youth Group and lots of local people to complete the project. “Even a 74-year-old joined in. He walked by, saw what we were doing and said ‘anything I can do to help?’ “We said ‘sure’ so he went and got his own ladders and paint.” “I am running my business, Arkade Graphics, as well as doing my work with youngsters.”
