The Peacock Gym

The Peacock Gym, Canning Town, East London, September 2011

Wild Place Your Space worked with the Peacock Gym, a boxing gym and charity in East London. 
In 2008, the gym founded its academy programme for young people aged 14-19 years old, with an ethos of “education through sport” to encourage youth enterprise, work opportunities, combat obesity and divert young people away from gangs and crime.

This film was created by a group of 10 young people at risk of social exclusion to demonstrate the opportunities for young people to access the Lee Valley Park and highlight activities, such as boxing training, outdoor cooking and tree planting.
