Urban Growth community project

This month we have started an exciting project working with 8-13 year olds in Leicester city centre. We have been funded by the Joyce Carr Doughty Trust to work with the Contact Project, a charity focussing on providing young people with creative learning and support.

Over six weeks, we are working with a group of young people to research, design and create an original collaborative art work which will be displayed in Makers’ Yard.

This week’s session involved a photo walk between the Contact Project and Makers’ Yard, exploring urban details which we will use in our design development.


We also turned out the first test pieces of concrete made last week, and worked on our design ideas using the photographs taken.
