Art at Urban Hope

23 October 2012

This Friday Urban Hope’s girls club are hosting an Exhibition. It will be a chance to view the art pieces they’ve been working on for the last 3 months. Each girl taking part has worked really hard on creating something that they feel fits in with the theme of peace and vandalism. Now the work is finished they are really looking forward to sharing them with family, friends and the wider community.

At Urban Hope we love seeing young people express themselves, through art, music, poetry, or any other means. We love it because it’s so good for them; it gives them a voice and a chance to be heard. They have got something worth saying to us, another perceptive on life that helps us understand each other and ourselves better.

So while we may not be working with the next Picasso or Professor Green (though some of them are really good!) we are looking forward to hearing what the young women have to say and see their confidence grow in it.
