Wow! Just wow! This banner was created by the talented artist Sarah Pimenta (https://social-fabric.co.uk/)
Sarah and the team at Grand Junction worked with a group of students from the Westminster Academy on a project called Community Banner – they soon renamed it Community Banter! The idea behind the project was for the students to become researchers and journalists, interviewing people local to them during lockdown and finding out interesting stories about their neighbours, their family or their friends. These stories were documented and then symbols were created for each story. And here is the finished product.
Watch this space for a community exhibition coming this Summer at Grand Junction.
Thank you to the students and Sarah for making this project a real success.
