Art-Cycle at Mint Street Park

Free, fun event to promote recycling through music and the arts.

There will be the opportunity to:

• Help create a sculpture made on the day from recycled materials.

• Listen to a junk sound installation.

• Ride a musical bike.

• Learn simple bike maintenance at a workshop.

• Learn from a drumming workshop and jam with newfound skills.

• Be creative with arts and crafts activites for kids.

• and enjoy face painting.

The event has been devised by 24-year-old Jade Mitchell who received a a grant from vcashpoint through v, the youth volunteering charity.

"Earlier this year I spent ten weeks in Nepal, helping to build a school and teaching the local school children English," says Jade.

"I was impressed by the Nepalese and how they wasted nothing, and valued everything. I wanted to bring this ethos back home to London, and the Borough and Bankside area."

Why hold the event in Southwark?

"First and foremost because I grew up in Southwark, and it's where my heart lies. That said, Southwark only recycles 14.28 per cent of its waste, which is low compared to other boroughs."
