Stay Alive Urban Art Project

To promote Stay Alive app, the first app of its kind in the UK, Grassroots are launching a urban art project across the city. The Stay Alive urban art project has already begun with an impressive piece on Bond Street. The work was painted by Graf Inc. local artists on the side wall of ShakeAway.

The project includes painting of electrical boxes across the city with a series of exciting and creative designs to be used to decorate a number of boxes. Urban art on electrical boxes has become a hugely popular feature of the streets of Brighton and Hove and this project will mean even more street art in the city.

As a part of the Stay Alive urban art project, the artists are working with Grassroots to hold two FREE workshops and an ART COMPETITION for members of the community to be involved in. The workshops, for people aged 16-25, are given the opportunity to learn basic street art skills such as stenciling and spraying, alongside a safe space to talk about issues around mental health and suicide. These workshops are being held in late March (Friday 27th and Saturday 28th).

The competition is open to anyone who is interested and requires entrants to submit a design for a background which should be an expression around the theme of suicide and suitable for use on an electric box in the city. Standardized Grassroots logo and Stay Alive app will be stenciled on top of the winning design.The winning entrant will see their work brought to life and used on a box on the streets of Brighton & Hove.

Deadlines for both places on the courses and entries to the design competition are Friday March 20th 2015.

We think this is an incredibly exciting project which will see the city benefit enormously. As well as promoting an excellent suicide prevention resource, Stay Alive, allowing it to be accessed and used by more people who need it, the art will also raise awareness of suicide as a community health problem and improve the look of the streets of our city.


We are looking forward to seeing the important work of this project come to life over the coming weeks. 








Workshop details: Friday 27th March 6- 9pm, or 
Saturday 28th 1-4pm at Brighton Youth Centre (BYC)
Deadline for workshop applications FRIDAY 20th MARCH 2015.
