Community Mural Painting - Volunteers Wanted
Location: Holy Brook Nook - What3Word code sizes.brave.force
Volunteers needed!
 
Commando Jugendstil, in collaboration with nature education NGO Nature Nurture is going to commence work on a community mural for the Holy Brook Nook nature play area.
The overall project is aimed at restoring an abandoned green space sandwiched between the Kennet, or rather the A33, and the Holy Brook, where the old railway cutting used to be. This is the What3Words location for it: hurry.herbs.tribes
 
The project is aimed at providing a safe nature play area for the children of the Coley and Katesgrove schools and of the neighbourhood in general, who are less exposed to nature because of the neighbourhood's central location. As many of you probably know already, access to nature is very important for human wellbeing and development and lack of access is considered an environmental injustice.
 
Part of the project is a series of public art pieces, including a 150+ sq. m mural celebrating the history and nature of the Coley area, which will be painted in one of the underpasses under the A33. You can find it here: sizes.brave.force.
We are hoping to transform the underpass from a non-place to a cultural point of interest for the neighbourhood.
 
We are looking for volunteers to help us paint the mural from Monday 08/08/2022 for a couple of weeks and then again in the Autumn.
No artistic talent or experience required; our mural-painting method is accessible and inclusive.
Equipment will be provided, you just need to bring your enthusiasm and sense of humour. 
 
Hope to see you there,
 
Laura and Guglielmo
