Our YA area here at Spreydon Library is looking much brighter after Kelly and I put up our Art Miles banner (made by the Hindi School).
The banner came with an explanation of what the banner is about:
Art Miles is an international project based on the premise that in painting, people come together regardless of language or culture.
To date, around half a million people have taken part in this project, in 125 countries.
This banner is one of 20 banners painted in Canterbury in contribution to this international movement … The banners were painted in the lead-up to the Summerz End Youth Fest, held on 5 April 2014. In keeping with the festival’s vision to create a inclusive space for all youth in Canterbury, the theme for the Art Miles banners was “This is who I am; this is who we are.”
