A History of Meeting of Styles UK 

Meeting of Styles is an international graffiti and street art festival that originated in Germany back in 2002. Since its foundation, the festival has been independently hosted in 22 cities across the globe and pulls in over 300,000 spectators every year.

Meeting of Styles is a spectacle of contemporary graffiti and street art, it creates a forum for artists from all over the world to come together and exchange ideas and techniques. The worldwide festival events have featured both established and emerging artists producing some of the best collaborative pieces.

Our Story 

We are EndoftheLine: A mural production company and creative agency run by Jim Vision & Matilda Tickner-Du. We have been running Meeting of Styles UK since 2008 in the streets and walls across London. We have had some of the world’s most sought after artists feature at the festival over the years such as the DMV Crew, Ghetto Farceur, Zoer, Kems, Nash & Does from Loveletter, Aryz & Nychos, all artists that have since gone on to become notorious players in the worldwide scene.

Meeting of Styles brings great art to London, creating a community event where people of all ages can come and be inspired by art in a friendly and engaging environment. The festival nurtures all aspects of the arts, having featured contemporary music culture, parkour, dance, great chefs and drink creators. It brings to our city a full weekend of creativity and entertainment.

When we host the International Meeting of Styles Endoftheline fund it with income from the commissions we take on, the full expenditure budget for the festival is usually £10-15k depending on our sponsorship offers. We cover some of this with income from our bar but much of it is an expense we are happy to take on to keep this event running. 

This year however we ask for your support to help spread the cost as things have been much tighter for us to find funding. We also want to give back to the Nomadic Community Gardens who are letting us host the main base at their amazing space - we aim to provide them with at least 10% of what we make on the funding. The garden is on the site of the largest wall of our 2014 MOS UK event.

We have always aimed to keep the vast majority of the event free of charge so that everyone can enjoy it, which is why it's such an important project to keep alive.

 Our Achievements

Our goal, like every year, is to bring fantastic artwork to our local neighbourhood and surrounding areas. Over the years we have had a vast mix of artists, many of which are now some of the most sought after artists in the world.

Each year the task to find walls for the festival is a huge one, there is ever more fierce competition but we strive to provide spaces that will be enjoyed following the event by all who visit London on street art pilgrimages.

EndoftheLine aim to set the bar high through hosting Meeting of Styles UK in unexpected spaces and providing this unique and sometimes negatively viewed artform a public stage. In 2014 we managed to secure the huge wall at Pedley street, providing one the largest graffiti walls East London had seen. In 2010 & 2011 we worked with The Studios in Holloway road to take over 12 huge walls on their empty shopfront, providing spaces for art that lasted over a year in the heart of a residential borough.

This year we aim to do the same and are working our hardest to confirm new and ever more exciting spots for our artists to paint.

 Our Aim

This year we are looking to run the biggest Meeting of Styles UK festival to date. With a new location, new walls and a new party venue, MOS UK will dominate the whole of the E1 area over the weekend of the 10-12th July. With a main site at the Fleet street base, we will look to have more food vendors, more workshops, a great lineup of music and organised tour guides making each wall site educational and inspirational.

Meeting of Styles is one of the UK’s largest and oldest street art festivals in the country, our aim, as always, will be to create the best event possible event that will showcase our culture to people of all ages and support the creativity of a thriving art scene - elevate the culture to next level and everyone that has always been so supportive.

 So how can you help?

Meeting of Styles brings together independant creative collectives under one roof to produce the five elements of hiphop. Everyone volunteers their time because this is an important cultural event. It has been paid for by Jim Visiom and Endoftheline with the proceeds from commercial work, this year has been tougher than most. We lost Rockwell House to the spector of Gentrification, pushing out creative talent to make more money, money, money..

We now ask that you the people help this event come to life. Help pay for the artists travel & accommodation, the materials needed, workshops, promotional packs and all the rest of the things needed to put on a good show.

So this is where you guys come in…

We are asking for your donations, large or small, to help raise funds for Meeting of Styles UK in London in 2015. We have had a huge amount of artist submissions this year and want to make sure that each of them have the best wall space and as much help with expenses as possible. Alongside this, your contributions will go towards the hire of equipment such as scaffold towers & cherry pickers, security, and other production costs at the event site. We will also be rewarding everyone with an afterparty feast where they can unwind and network and be treated to a great last dinner - Tickets for the afterparty are included in some of the prizes, so donate carefully and you could be in for a chance of joining us!

Risks and challenges

Hosting the Meeting of Styles in the UK is a big task for a small team but we do so with a team of volunteers to support us. There's always lots of different sites to confirm, and regulations to adhere to ensure we operate this event as safely as possible and that everyone has a great time.

Each year we look to put on the best festival possible to make their journey's worthwhile. But we need funds in order to make this happen.
There may be a few final hurdles to overcome if we get our funding but most things should be in place, we've got a contingency plan for whether we raise the funds or not.

So whatever happens we will strive to put on the best show that we can and work hard with the team to make sure that Meeting of Styles 2015 is the best year yet!
