After asking the young people and community what they'd like to change about Network, we had quite a few people mention the spray painting outside in the allotment. We looked into a few different local artists and organised to have Skeg come in to help the young people paint it, funded by the Healthy Holidays Hull fund. He went over designs with them and incorporated all of their ideas before sketching it out on the wall for them to fill in with spray paints.
The young people had a blast getting involved and learnt a lot from Skeg, and were surprised and inspired by the idea that they could be paid if they became an artist in the future too. We're very happy with the bright and colourful result and all the little added extras just shout 'Network'!!
Have a look below at some before photos of the allotment to compare!
