    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Bob Marley has been at the heart of South London's community for decades. A Bob Marley mural was first painted over 40 years ago in Brockley by an unknown artist. This was replaced in 2005 as part of 'black icons' celebration but demolished in 2014 to make way for a new housing development.

    We want to Bring Back Bob as the centrepiece of the forthcoming Brockley Street Art Festival (29th May - 6th June 2015).

    The local community was sad to lose its longstanding Bob Marley mural from the streets of Brockley. As well as showcasing the legend, the mural has always been seen as a celebration of local cultural diversity and a unique part of the area's rich artistic history.

    Today we're asking for your help to give Bob back to his rightful place as an iconic London mural. Help us to Bring Back Bob!

    The Brockley Street Art Festival takes place from Friday 29th May to Saturday 6th June 2015 held in conjunction with established arts festival Brockley Max. Painting will start on the opening night of the festival just yards from the original mural site on a wall owned by The Brockley Barge pub.

    £5,000 will go a long way to cover artists fees, materials and equipment for this and other murals painted during the festival.

    This is a brand new festival in the heart of South East London which will transform vacant walls and shutters into amazing spaces for public art for everyone to enjoy.
