" Mongrel is a mixed bunch of people, machines and intelligence working to celebrate the methods of London/Global street culture(mongrelSTREET). We make socially engaged culture, which sometimes means making art, sometimes software, sometimes setting up workshops, or helping other mongrels to set things up.
Mongrels make art about ourselves or about the life and thinking of people we meet. Sometimes we do this in order to think and feel better for ourselves. Sometimes we are creating a space for others to inhabit that thinking and feeling. This means we rarely operate as the core group. We prefer to work on a range of activities, individually or collectively. These can be with organisations, or other Mongrels.
The ability to plug into different cultures, skills, structures or ways of doing things means our art gets to stay fresh. "
