Focallocal is gathering local people to make where they live Beautiful! #guerillaurbanbeautication

Below are some photo’s of a horribly neglected area in the Maiden Lane estate, in Camden London.The story i heard is that the council disputes who is responsible for the area, and so its been left as a dump for close to 30 years.We’re bringing local people together to take ownership for their community, by creating beautiful gardens and landscape to create a lovely walk to school for all the families and children who regularly use the path, and to make the local area a more pleasant place to live. I’m sure those kids would have a nicer start to the day if their walk to school involved a magical oasis of creativity and nature ..than through this horrible eye-sore.Send us an email if you’d like to know more, join in, or help us contacting local businesses to gather materials, seeds and plants.Beautification begins on the 26th and 27th of September

Science Behind A Smile – My First “Take A Smile”

      Last Sunday, I joined Andy to draw lots of smiles, and then we gave them out to everyone in Camden. We met simply to put some extra smiles in someone’s day! ..also, drawing is so much fun!I love drawing, so the moment i started to draw, I found it almost impossible to stop and therefore I lost track of time. Then I felt very shy when it was time for us to give the drawings out to people on the street. I was concerned that people might have felt uneasy when we approached them.Some people did walk passed, or didn’t respond to us.
