WE LOVE BRIXTON is a not-for-profit social enterprise, and at its foundation, its purpose is to build a sustainable community brand.
WE LOVE BRIXTON intends to create; events, workshops and a legacy that delivers projects in ways that are accessible and will reach and engage as many groups as possible within our community.
We build partnerships and collaborations between the arts, business and enterprise.
We create projects that encourage personal development, engagement and increase the cultural opportunities for the individual, social groups, young and old, small business owners and large corporations living within the Brixton locality and surrounding areas.
Our focus is to create projects that add in raising the self-esteem of a whole community through the investment of people, enterprise and public space for the purpose of creating authentic vehicles for businesses to add sustained value to the community.

On Saturday 24th Sept 2011 in Windrush Square as part of International peace week the first WE LOVE BRIXTON event was born….
