Over the last few weeks, I have been working as the assisting artist for a PlaceMaking Project organised by Helen Bock of Community Arts Network (CAN). Working with lead artists Lawrence Wilkes and Helen Crawford, a mosaic mural, a painted mural and wooden seating in the shape of a big goanna (completed with exhaust pipe legs!) was created with the residents of Common Ground, Light Square.
Amazing transformation of a space from soul-less "passing through" kind of space to a community area well and truly marked with the artistic stamp of residents - exactly what a PlaceMaking project is all about!
