On Rebel Night, 23rd September, we will offer the ‘Rebel Plinth’ for spoken word performers to host a short walking tour, starting at the tree in Windrush Square. People will follow the speakers, being encouraged to make their own voices heard on the associated subject. People will be transported through differing interpretations of ‘rebel’ from Brixton’s history.
As the tour progresses the individual plinths will be taken up by the performance artists and bought to Brixtopia where they will be joined together to form the stage.
The leftover plinth locations will be chalked out with an associated quote or piece of text written inside enabling visitors to track the legacy of the event and Brixton’s stories. The final destination of the route will be Brixtopia: Brixton Design Trail’s late night headline event and the future creative space for those with rebellion and generosity in their hearts. Please come and join us and raise your voice and rebel!
