I am thrilled to have been awarded the second Arts Council funded 'COG' residency through Creative Workspace. COG stands for 'Creative Opportunity Giver'. Working with the community as resident artist, I am excited to see the form this mural will take!
What makes it particularly special is that I have family ties to the area - my mum even went to the primary school next to the site of this new mural. It's fantastic for me to be able to give back to this particular community.
Next week I will be going to Merchant's Academy secondary school to work with year 9 students. Together we will design and produce a new mural to decorate an external wall to welcome visitors to Creative Workspace.
I'll keep you posted with further updates and developments - watch this space for Withywood's newest mural!
