Vandals Destroy Works In Croydon, But Local Community & Artists Rally Around!

It’s with extreme disappointment that I find myself reporting on the terrible act of vandalism that befell Croydon’s Art Quarter around St Georges Walk on Sunday night, a mere week from the incredible Femme Fierce Croydon event that really was the starting point for a beautiful and inspiring project to come.

Local gardeners and contractors offered to come clean any structural damage to the area. The art community’s response to the situation was to come along set to replace the damaged works immediately, and that is what started happening today. Several artists arrived today to replace some of the damaged walls and in the process continued the process of Croydon offering fantastic and high quality art.
