HSE School Mural Competition – Updates

14th December 2021 / Posted by Isidora Rivera Vollmer

Following the recent HSE mural design competition to support Car Free Day 2021, CRP has now been working on bringing the winning drawings to life.

Artists are currently being commissioned to produce permanent murals based on the winning mural designs at Cayley Primary School (Tower Hamlets), William Tyndale Primary School (Islington), and Middle Park Primary School (Greenwich). The painting process will begin in the new year when weather conditions improve. Pupils will also be involved throughout the artistic process. Through initial guided workshops, the children will be able to build on the winning design and add more personalised imagery. In some cases, the children will also be able to help in the actual painting process.

The workshops and the murals at the schools will raise awareness and engage school children and parents on the topics of air pollution and active travel.

We can’t wait to see the three new murals in Spring 2022!For further information, please contact CRP Project Manager Fiona Coull.
