2019 MASCYCLE – MAS CAMP IS HERE!
IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN…
Our vibrant South-London carnival centre hosts our annual
MAS CAMP get-together!
EVERYONE is WELCOME!!
This year our Upcycled theme means carnival can be more AFFORDABLE for ALL. Our contribution to the Artform is to involve more people, and we do this by enabling people on a lower income, who may not have had the opportunity, to get involved.
How can we work TOGETHER to make a DIFFERENCE!?
our 2019 band is fully UPCYCLED and RECYCLED
With all the GLAMOUR you’d expect from carnival!
come and see how we do it!
“Mas Camp is about community coming together, working together. It’s about the conversations happening around the table, while we’re sticking glue. I don’t want a life where we depend on trained artists too much.”
– Ray Mahabir in The Brixton Bugle
MAS CAMPs take place in our quirky, uplifting and enjoyable setting of community involvement and carnival arts -C.A.F.E (Carnival-Arts-For-Everyone) near Brixton.
