Buckland graffiti (Street Art) Project was undertaken by The Art and Soul Traders based in The Lodge Arts Centre, Victoria Park, Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK. Because of the extreme amount of marker pen graffiti on the blank stairwells around the estate, the project engaged with the young people to design and paint thier names up onto the walls. The result was that the young people as well as the rest of the community gained a newly founded respect for their environment whilst creating a more aesthetically pleasant entrance to the estate. The effects of this project have helped promote youth engagement in community involvement and cohesion, a reduction in youth involvement in crime and offending behvaiour as well as substance misuse.
