Pop Brixton

Community Event: Inspiring Butterflies

Skye Alexandra House is a semi-residential home for vulnerable women aged 16-18. It helps young women who have suffered abuse, imprisonment and have grown up in foster homes as a result of dysfunctional childhoods.

Pop Brixton works regularly with SKA on their “Inspiring Butterflies” programme, a series of workshops that focus on personal development, life skills, awareness of sexual exploitation and domestic violence, bullying, money management, performing arts and enterprise.

The workshops have all been held in our Greenhouse and Pop Box event spaces and Pop Brixton staff have regularly supported the initiative by volunteering to mentor the girls in their personal development.

This summer, the project is using one of our pop-up units free of charge as a temporary retail unit where the girls can experience running their own businesses with real customers.
