Staircase of Dreams

Staircase of Dreams

The Staircase of Dreams is a bold takeover of the entrance staircase of Waltham Forest College, E17.

Designed by graphic artist The Fandangoe Kid, it emerged from a series of online social engagement workshops with young people in the local area, on daily activism and resilience in 2020. The piece uses colour, text and architectural form to express how young people's voices can speak out and push change forward.

The staircase was installed by Wood Street Walls and commissioned as part of the first William Morris Design Line, a key part of LDF 2020's new district routes in local areas.


This project has been longlisted in the graphic design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
