‘We Shine Brighter Together’ Nurture CIC Community installation 2021

I was very proud to be the lead artist supporting the creative development of this fantastic project by Nurture Community CIC, a not for profit organisation ran by local businesses and volunteers.

Funded by Lichfield Arts, the installation featured paper stars created by 500 members of the local community with support from local primary schools and community groups including young people and adults with learning disabilities.

The stars were displayed at The Garrick Theatre or the whole community to enjoy in the run-up to Christmas

My brief was to devise a simple origami star activity, source materials that could be distributed to community groups in 500 bespoke packs and create a how-to video. In keeping with Nurture’s mission, it was vital that the activity was fully accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
