Converse announces the launch of CONS Project London, the latest instalment in a series of global community projects designed to inspire the next generation of creative spirits through music, art, style and skate. Following on from the success of similar initiatives in New York, Los Angeles and more recently Warsaw and Belgrade, CONS Project London will open in Peckham – one of the city’s most up-and-coming creative hubs – from Thursday 22nd May.
The ambitious 10-week project will help to unleash urban creativity within the community using the space as a hub for a series of talks, workshops and exhibitions; all aimed at inspiring young people, giving them opportunities to learn whilst fueling their creative passions.
Five local CONS Ambassadors have curated the project: James Benenson (Urban Nerds), Alex Synamatix (The Daily Street), Scratcha DVA (Rinse/Hyperdub), Jerome Campbell (Converse Cons Skate Ambassador) and Sam Taylor (Vice/Little White Lies).
Converse CONS skate ambassador Jerome Campbell and friends have crafted a calendar of photographic and film inspired skate sessions that will help budding skaters learn new skills within the CONS Project LDN Skate Street – a dedicated outdoor space at the venue which has been built using a host of iconic urban architecture, creating a unique skateable city landscape. The overall aesthetic conjures up an unusual urban street scene, with a collection of random signage, storefronts and its own London pub.CONS Project LDN Skate Street Opening Times
