Release begins: 60 well known female street artists are expected to descend upon St. George’s Walk (the now-branded Croydon arts quarter) in Croydon to create colourful murals all down the street.

St Georges Walk is expecting spectators from all over London to come down and witness the event.

‘It’s open for anyone to come and see. As we know, art has a way bringing communities and people together so we hope its going to be a great day. We are honoured to have all Femme Fierce join us here in Croydon,’ says Kevin Zuchowski-Morrison  the man behind the RISE gallery.

Femme Fierce also plan to take over RISE gallery for a group show which opens from the 26th of February for 5 weeks.

The Croydon event takes place ahead of Femme Fierce’s  main event on 8th of March 2015 at the famed Leake Street tunnel in Waterloo on International Women’s day where they expect a turn out of over 150 female artists. Last year they broke the Guinness book of records for longest spray mural done by a team. The Leake street event also raises much needed money for PLAN UK.

The Croydon event will take place from 10am-5pm Sunday the 15th of February.

Release ends.
