Pop Brixton

Pop Brixton is a community initiative founded by Make Shift, a team of socially minded creators, makers, entrepreneurs and doers who champion collaboration, drive progress and see it as their duty to bring prosperity to local communities through enterprise. Pop Brixton transformed a disused plot of land into a pioneering space that showcases the most exciting independent businesses from Brixton and Lambeth, and provides a destination that supports local creatives and entrepreneurs to grow their business and share space, skills and ideas. As well as providing the space local businesses need to thrive, we work with our members and partners to make a positive difference locally. We invest our time and skills into local charitable projects, provide free space for community events of every kind, and host regular open workshops ranging from children’s art classes, young people’s DJ classes and horticulture training in our community garden.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
