We were lucky enough to catch up with Robyn to chat a bit more about her creation. Here’s what she had to say.
It’s my home. I’ve only lived here about three years but feel pretty rooted, more so than most other places I’ve lived. Before I lived here I worked in local mental health services and got to know a lot of people through the work I was doing. I’m a really curious person and love hearing people’s stories. Listening to people tell their stories is a really powerful way of being able to connect with them and I wanted to get to know some more of the people that I live amongst. In my mind, Brixton’s always been a place that’s welcomed people to come and set up home (something I think is changing and becoming too exclusive) and I think that possible leads people to be quite open, and provides a real mixture of stories. That’s not to say that the same wouldn’t be true of other places.
