Helping young people improve their environment
Morph4us is a community arts project being developed by the Burntwood community.
Led by young people working with local residents the Morph4us team are creating a series of public art pieces that will form a Walking Gallery around Burntwood.
The project aims to break down social barriers and existing stereotypes by encouraging different age groups to work together and use art to morph their community.
The first phase of the project has now been completed, with young people developing artwork for Redwood Park using images donated by the community that represent the past, present and the future of the area.
The next phase of the project will see a young people working with the community in creative workshops over two years to create four more pieces of public artwork.
The project has now been nominated for a Philip Lawrence Award, which recognises the good that young people do in the community. To find out more, visit the Philip Lawrence Award Network website.
