Blackburn Open Walls / by Lucy

(Thank you to Andy Faraday for the photo)

Last week I painted the side of the local community centre for 8-18 yr olds, the Blackburn Youth Zone as part of Blackburn Open Walls. In between the rain and the EU Referendum, 6 wonderful walls were painted around the city centre.

During my visit I saw how the Youth Zone was a hub of activity and one of the few places everyone got together with no segregation, no cliques. My wall was to be a reflection of this unity.
