Through the 'Stop Sign Memorial' project we are co-creating a large sculptural artwork to commemorate people who have lost their lives whilst homeless in Brighton and Hove.
We want this artwork to belong to the people to whom it will mean the most and are therefore involving as many people as we can who are either currently, or have previously been, homeless in the design and manufacture of the artwork. Alongside this we also want to work with people who have lost families through homelessness and staff from organisations that have supported the homeless community of Brighton and Hove.
We have created a committee of people to help manage the project and ensure that it meets our objectives of being designed and made by people with the most connection to the artwork.
STOP SIGN ART PACKS
SO THAT WE CAN ENGAGE AS ANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE IN THE CREATION OF THE MEMORIAL WE HAVE CREATED ART PACKS THAT WE HOPW WILL ENABLE PEOPLE TO SHARE THEIR IDEAS AND MEMORIES WITH US.
THE PACKS INCLUDE: A SKETCHBOOK, A LUMP OF AIRDRY CLAY, A PENCIL, A PEN, A CLAY TOOL AND SOME IDEAS AS TO HOW WHAT PEOPLE COULD MAKE OR DRAW.
WE HOPE TO CAPTURE:
VISUAL MEMORIES OF PEOPLE NOW LOST.
STORIES ABOUT LOVED ONES
DRAWINGS OF IDEAS AND MEMORIES
POEMS ABOUT FRIENDS
