Our Power in Paint project was featured live on ITV Anglia News on Wednesday May 15, as our Artistic Director Aimi Rix unveiled her latest artwork.
Reporter Raveena Ghattaura on scene at Power Court as Aimi put the finishing touches to a stencil grafitti piece depicting Luton sporting and creative stars Olympic kickboxing hopeful Jordan Thomas, drum n bass MC Chris Middleton aka Fivealive, hip hop artists Si Phili and Luton clothing brand OTM Wear supremo Martin Asien.
The Power in Paint project, in collaboration with Aimi Rix and Little Red Creative Studios, is turning Power Court’s blue hoardings into Europe’s largest urban street art project, to kick-start the transformation of a site that has been derelict for two decades, but will soon be the new home of Luton Town Football Club.
Power Court will also be home to some stunning new facilities, such as a 1,800-capacity music venue, bars, restaurants, a public piazza and the revealing of the River Lea – which currently runs underground through the site – plus a range of other exciting facilities that, along with its sister Newlands Park development, will act as a catalyst to the major regeneration of Luton.
