About the Project

Adopt an Alleyway is a pilot project funded by London Borough of Newham, which seeks to rethink how alleyways might be used, enjoyed and cared for by local communities. The project ran from July-September 2017. Eight locations were identified, by Newham’s Community Neighbourhood teams, and each project was designed through consultation with residents and local groups.

Parrabbola is a community arts organisation, who specialise in large scale community plays, street festival projects and development programs across the UK and Europe. Parrabbola is rooted in the communities where it works. All projects are designed to be enjoyable and engaging, to develop skills and build a creative legacy.
