Tonight (June 4th) Apollo - a new community led arts project - is opening in a former video rental shop in South London.
Their website says:
“In a bid to rid the streets of decay, and support the local businesses, the group has secured the shop for the month of June. With crucial backing of the Herne Hill Traders Association and local Councils, the Apollo Video Store will be home to a creative festival of art, film, music and performance provided by local talent and high profile artists.
Decay on the high street during this period of recession is creeping into our communities. Rather than sit by and watch the broken glass syndrome take over, we are committed to using this space to attract visitors from near and far to the area.”
