The new Armley mural was unveiled to the public at a fun and family-friendly launch party by arranges by All Together Armley and Modes of Expression, the artists that painted the mural.
I really enjoyed meeting the Armley based artists Bobbi and Emma to talk about the project, the pair collected drawings and mementos from Armley residents both young and old. Older residents contributed with the aid of local charity Armley Helping Hands. The Breeze team at Armley Leisure Centre ensured that the younger residents of Armley contributed to the piece in their own way.
It was great to see the whole community coming together to celebrate the local area. Whilst at the event you could really feel the how supportive everyone was of the product, hopefully this mural product could be expanded in other areas of Leeds.
