Roundhouse Needs A Paintjob

What would YOU do with this blank wall?
Have your say and spark debate. If you’re a street artist, aged 11-25, and would like to paint this space as a part of the Counted project, please send us your ideas.

Here’s the brief...
Day-to-day, hour-by-hour, do decisions made by others have an impact on your life? What does politics mean to you? Is it just about the government, or is it the small things that affect your everyday life – in class, on the street, at work, on the bus, at home? Is it something you care about? What should people care about?

The wall will be part of a series of projects…
- Counted, a timely documentary-play shedding light on why so many people don’t vote. At County Hall, on the south bank of the Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament, from 15 April-22 May.
- Do you feel Counted? a weekend of performance and debate for 11-25 year olds at
the Roundhouse, 17/18 April.
- Online activity instigating debate and interaction.

Format and budget
The large external-facing white wall, approx 3 x 14m, is on the corner of Chalk Farm Road and Regents Park Road. The Roundhouse can provide a reasonable budget for materials. Please send a breakdown with your design.

Application process
Send a design concept, summary of why you want to create the piece, and cost of materials to Bea Hankey at or Roundhouse, 100A Chalk Farm Road, London NW1 8EH. Please call Bea on 020 7424 8473 if you’d like more information.
