We’ve teamed up with Cheltenham Paint Festival thanks to a successful bid by Think Travel to GWR to produce a piece of street art at the railway station.
Dice 67 and Slaz will be gathering ideas for a new piece and would like you to help them with ideas for artwork to be painted on the bridge opposite the Charlie Chaplin mural.
If you’ve got some bright ideas or would like to learn some of the basic techniques in design then drop in to Popeyes on Saturday 28th! See below for details
You can also see the new art work which has been painted on the side of the chippy – its fantastic.
All welcome 🙂
We’ve just commissioned some urban art at Hesters Way!
Just days after the end of the fantastic Cheltenham Paint Festival, HWP were offered the artist Samer to paint on the wall at Hesters Way Community Resource Centre. His work in Cheltenham includes the “gannets” adjacent to Woody’s veg stall on the High Street from 2018 and the “cat” on Albion Street form the 2019 festival.
Flower Bird was completed on September 12th and we hope you’ll agree adds a superb new perspective to the centre.
Hesters Way Partnership has undertaken numerous projects to reduce its carbon footprint but we have a way to go to become carbon neutral.
See the presentation below for what we have done and some ideas for how we can step up the game even further.
