'How clean is our air?' wonders Woodhouse Park youth group

  • Posted on

Young people at Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre explored the idea of air pollution through art ahead of this year’s Clean Air Day.

We joined forces with youth workers at the Friday night open youth session run by Wythenshawe Community Housing Group and community artist, Jamie Rennie, to give young people the chance to think about the air they breathe and the potential impact it might have on our lungs while developing their artistic talents.

Over seven weeks, 15 young people got creative, working on their own ideas and canvases before bringing their ideas together to create a piece of graffiti art which was displayed at Wythenshawe Forum as part of the Clean Air Day event.

The individual artwork can currently be seen on display at Wythenshawe Library but we are currently looking for a permanent home for the amazing Wythenshawe banner.

If you are know of a community space where the artwork could be displayed please get in touch with Cassie by email at publicprogrammes@mft.nhs.uk or by phone on 0161 276 6614.
