Although I like the idea of a distinctive South East London style (i.e. the vintage rail design), I also love local Havelock artist Rob Lowe’s (AKA Supermundane) modern designs (including the current Havelock mural). Also the bright and bold designs of Survival Techniques.
Possibly - although there is quite a lot of bureaucracy in setting up a non-profit for this purpose. I did look into this last year after @Pauline sent me some info on the requirements for applying for ward funding. I came to the conclusion it would be easier and quicker for SE23.life to raise £2500 for the mural via a public crowdfunder than it would be for SE23.life to set up a non-profit arm and apply for £2500 from the council.
But if anyone else wants to do the legwork, they are welcome to leverage the SE23.life “brand” and I will help in all promotional activities.
IMO the Forest Hill Society would be best placed to lead and raise the funding as they have the expertise and the established non-profit entity. They may, of course, have other projects in mind for 2017 funding though.
Last year I created an opt-in category (join the FH Mural group for access). To discuss the nuts and bolts of the mural project, that’s probably the best place. But obvs, anything more general (and the vote on designs) should be out here in the main forum.
