Legal Graffiti Walls

We the undersigned petition the council to provide legal graffiti walls.

Legal graffiti walls are proven to promote a reduction in anti-social behaviour.

More so now than ever our children and young people need a safe and supportive environment in which to express themselves while practising team-work, communication and developing personal skills.

There are currently NO legal graffiti walls in the BCP Council area. Legal sites offer a canvas for artists to showcase and refine their skills without fear of prosecution. A general code of conduct is to only paint over what you can better. Providing legal outlets for graffiti artists and writers is proven to reduce 'tagging' and vandalism. There are successful sites all over the UK but the closest to us are Swanage and Southampton.

We are fortunate to be home to a number of incredibly talented artists who have been commissioned by BCP Council to bring murals and public art to the area. All of these artists had to start somewhere.

This ePetition runs from 04/07/2022 to 15/08/2022.
