Project: “Places and Dreams”, participatory illustration applied as mural onto community bench.
Client: Luton Council & Flying Start.
The bench was the culmination of a series of language development workshops led by A Children’s Story. All elements of the design were developed from a drawing or verbal expression from participating children.
“Places and Dreams” is a Luton Council & Flying Start project funded by the Department for Education Early Outcomes Fund.
Specifically designed to develop communication skills in early years children and to promote communication between children and between children and their families, children are able to recognise themselves and their ideas in the artworks, creating a sense of pride in them and their families; improving civic pride and community participation.
Collage based design, applied using paper stencils and weatherproof paints.
