Gloucester’s budding young street artists will have an opportunity to showcase their skills and create new art in the city centre, with a little help from our Western region.
We’ve joined forces with Gloucester City Centre Community Partnership and Young Gloucestershire to develop an urban art project at our Greyfriars Quarter development on Brunswick Road in the heart of the city.
Youth groups have been invited to develop artworks, reflecting life in the city, for display on the development’s hoardings facing the Via Sacre – which runs along one of the boundaries of the site.
Once Linden’s development is complete the panels will be auctioned to raise funds for Young Gloucestershire, to provide street based youth workers delivering education, training and social opportunities for young people in the city.
Linden Homes Western managing director Clive Wiltshire said: “We recognise that street art contributes to Gloucester’s vibrancy and wanted to provide a creative outlet for the young people of the city.”
John McLaughlin, CEO of Gloucester City Centre Community Partnership, added: “This is a great opportunity for the young people of Gloucester to express themselves creatively and we are sure that it will result in some exciting interpretations of Gloucester life.”
