“The young people have learned in depth the difference in style and evolution of Graffiti through the years of Hip Hop culture, from research on the internet, documentaries and interviews with Derby’s best old school Graffiti artists and have even taken part in practically demonstrating what they have learnt on canvas. They were taught by the best this City has to offer, Sire, the legend himself! They designed timelines of the styles through the decades. They even designed their own graffiti “tag” and put them on to clothing.
We had some brilliant old photos, and books depicting the changes in style through the years and the young people loved it! It was great to see them involved in the culture and comment on the changes throughout the years.” Will: Project Youth Worker.
