About Graff

Graff was a youth project that developed from the skate project (see 180) as young people who were into skating were very often also into graffiti.

We worked in partnership with the local council, Youth Offending Team and council youth service to deliver a weekly project that gave young people a safe and legal space to develop their skills as artists. As a result of the project graffiti statistics in the city reduced massively and we were able to divert young people from illegal graffiti into legal art.

This page is a space to share stories, photos, films, policies and other useful information from the project.
