This is a great idea to bring music to the centre of Walthamstow during the day and people of all ages loved it . It gave our town a rhythm, vibrancy and welcoming feel.
I have seen first-hand the positive effects it (project) has had on some of the young people we work with, one, in particular, arrived at the project so distant from his family and unable to communicate, often missing from home for periods of time, the difference in this young man was inspiring, he opened up to his family and found employment. Feedback from his parents was full of gratitude and pride at the music he had produced.
The project was innovative and radical, themes that we encourage and embrace here in the London Borough of Culture 2019. David’s event brought a wide range of artists and audiences together and benefited the local community by opening up untraditional spaces and attracting a high footfall. David is clearly extremely passionate about bringing culture to communities and garnering engagement, this has shone through in the project that he delivered in Waltham Forest.
