All in all... another day on the wall

Friday was the local skaters' turn to add something to the giant wall at Mount Hawke skatepark in Cornwall.

This wall is so huge that it is to be painted in sections during Drawin On Things workshops by different groups who use the skate park. See other posts on here for more.

Full of in-jokes and hidden meanings, this part of the project was a lot of fun for everyone involved. We even had a barbecue!

It was a hot day. Probably the hottest day on record, since records began, but this didn't stop this hardcore crew from completing a huge section of the wall.

CN4C what's inside?

Yesterday I ran a Drawing On Things workshop to help the youth work team at CN4C (Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change) in Redruth, Cornwall create visual communication for the street outside which reflects in an instant what goes on inside their building.

There was a lot to squeeze in. This place is not only a center for youth work but also a training center for adults, employment advice, arts, hotdesks, information, community activities, a radio station and much more.

In this picture there are signs bursting out of the roof which symbolize the kinds of beneficial activities that can be found within and the whole community coming together to get the most out of the center. We also made sign boards with the same coloured background as this main board.
