Detail from ‘Love Letter to ‘Mum’ digital sketch – Linett Kamala © 2017

Linett Kamala took part in the Brixton Design District as part of the London Design Festival (16 – 24 September 2017).

This theme for the Brixton Design District was Love is Power; communicating the positive force of love in celebrating difference and promoting acceptance.

A group of 15 teenage girls took part in a one day workshop entitled Love Letter, To ‘Mum’ where they produced works of art based on their relationship to the significant nurturing figure in their life, taking inspiration from Linett’s calligraffiti sketches.

*The Brixton Design District showcased an exciting line up designers from a range of backgrounds, highlighting that the community is made up of many cultures living alongside each other with respect for diversity and an appreciation of many shared values – it is this mix that is the essence of Brixton.
