Local communities and partners from across the UK and abroad participated in creating the festival - from Lambeth and Brixton in South London to artists and young people from Pelhourino in Salvador, Brazil - with a wide-ranging programme of themed weekends, performances, talks, outdoor art installations and urban greenery across Southbank Centre's 21-acre site.
