Art Attack in Campsie
Published: Mon, 1 Aug 2016
The Saturday Club in Campsie’s Hub has been working hard on a piece of artwork to be revealed later this summer along the river bank.
It is part of a reimaging initiative by Campsie Residents’ Association for the area which aims to show good relations in motion.
The Housing Executive has been funding the project which will see a ceramic mural unveiled in the area during August. As part of the creative process the artist worked with a range of groups from the area including the young people in the Saturday Club who designed the border for the final mosaic.
The Club’s members are cutting, sewing and painting to create bunting, flags and art for display during the unveiling celebration.
Eddie Doherty, our local Area Manager said:
“We were pleased to invest in the project as part of our commitment to support a safe and healthy community. We strive to make people's lives better and the Saturday Club’s involvement in this project is a good example of how such funding can make a difference to a range of people.”
Meanwhile, Hazel McGuigan from Campsie Residents’ Association said:
“The Saturday Club only joined us at the Hub at the start of this year. We were delighted they wanted to be part of the mosaic project and have proved a creative tour de force with their ideas for the mosaic, flags, paintings and bunting.
We are all looking forward to the celebration event in August when all of their hard work and our mosaic will be revealed!”
