It is being held to raise money for the Memoirs Through Murals project which will see them work with primary schools in Collier Row to encourage children to capture stories about the town's history through writing and drawings.
Using these stories as inspiration, they will then work with street artists to create murals alongside a complimentary booklet and art trail, celebrating the history and stories of Collier Row.
More than £7,000 is still needed before August 27 in order to receive the Mayor of London's pledge of £30,000 for the project.
