Nature in Northstowe - Chapter 2!

Did you see all the artwork produced for our Nature in Northstowe project earlier this year, when we exhibited at the Northstowe Community Centre Celebration on 30th September?

We're delighted that Homes England have asked us to rework those pieces of art created by members of the Northstowe community into panels to cover hoardings in Phase 2 of Northstowe! This is a great opportunity to visually connect Phases 1 and 2 of Northstowe, and to highlight many more of the artworks than we were able to for the original project.

We'll be sharing progress on this project here and on our socials (Facebook and Instagram) - and looking forward to seeing the rejuvenated hoardings in the Spring!

We're grateful to South Cambridgeshire District Council for funding the original project and enabling us to use the design concept and artworks produced for the second chapter of this activity, to Homes England for funding that second chapter, and to Hudson Signs Ltd for supporting the printing costs of the panels.

Moreover, we're grateful to all the members of the Northstowe community who contributed inspiration photos and created pieces of art for this project during workshops with young people at the Connections Bus Project/Northstowe Youth Hive @ Northstowe Secondary College, and with people of all ages at the Northstowe Warm Hub.
