‘Shared Space’ artwork created by Cloughmills Crochet Group
Tue, April 16, 2019
A colourful creation made by members of Cloughmills Crochet Group has been unveiled as part of a ‘shared space’ initiative.
The project, delivered by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Good Relations programme, aimed to raise awareness about what shared space means and encourage participants to think about how their community facilities can be welcoming, open and accessible to everyone.
The piece of art, in the form of a large hanging wall feature, depicts a large tree with roots connected at the base. It symbolises branching out to those within the community who are from different backgrounds and beliefs.
This latest project follows on from a mammoth task which saw the group raise over £11,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support after completing a crochet replica of Cloughmills village.
The new piece of art will be on display in Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady before moving to Flowerfield Arts Centre in Portstewart.
