Since January, Artspace in Mill Street has been opening on a Tuesday for people to come and work with resident mural artist DJ on a wall mural all about Brierley Hill. Local residents and budding artists from across the Borough have been having a go at painting some of the iconic buildings of the town and memories associated with it – from the five stacks of Round Oaks to the Chapel Street Estate- the community in Brierley Hill have been telling us what should be in the mural – to capture the ‘spirit’ of the town. The mural is just one way we hope to be able to help developers of the future understand what Brierley Hill is all about and what is important about the town’s buildings, places and spaces for the people who live there.
With only a couple of weeks left to go before the mural is finished, we want to give people who haven’t been able to make the Tuesday workshops the opportunity to make their mark on this exciting piece of community-led art.
Artspace, 8 Mill Street, Brierley Hill (off the High Street) will be opening on Saturday 16 April from 1pm-4pm. Just turn up and have a go – no experience necessary.
Final two days to get involved in painting the mural are: Tuesday 19 and Tuesday 26 April.
