Converse Announces Cons Project London

Converse has announced the arrival of its popular creative initiative in London. Cons Project will set up shop in the capital next week, following stints in New York, Los Angeles, Warsaw and Belgrade.

The community-based pop-up offers talks, workshops and exhibitions to young people across music, art, style and skate industries.

Peckham in south east London has been chosen as the location for the ten-week residency. A statement by the American firm described it as “one of the city’s most up-and-coming creative hubs”.

During the stay, attendees will learn skills ranging from filming and editing to hosting a radio show. The events have been put together with the help of local Cons ambassadors, including James Benenson, Urban Nerds; Alex Synamatix, The Daily Street; and Sam Taylor, Vice/Little White Lies.

In addition to the hands-on lessons, Converse plans to unveil a new skate park designed by Jerome Campbell at the opening on 22nd May.

Visitors will have a full week of events before the official launch party hosted by US hip-hop star Pusha T on the 29th.

The Cons Project London will be open to all youths over the age of sixteen free of charge until it closes on 31st July. Tickets for happenings throughout May and June can be reserved online now.
