All of my memories of Bounce were enjoyable. From preparing and performing Angels to Urban Art Stories.

Taking park in the Urban Art Stories project gave me the opportunity to venture across London, seeking out the footprints of street artists on urban landscapes. Visiting the Leake Street graffiti tunnel is a memory that I can never erase because experiencing the art physically opened my eyes to the many different social and political issues, visually conveyed on a blank canvas wall.  Through this project I was able to develop essential skills such as decision-making and communication, as well as art-specific skills that include curation and basic graffiti techniques. Not to mention the fact I was even able to win a Jack Petchey award for outstanding achiever, which was absolutely amazing.
