Street Art project with young people from Muirhouse in Edinburgh. Through discussions about conflict, the group came up with a number of statements, cut out giant letters from sheets of wood, spray painted them in vibrant colours and then took the statements to the streets of Edinburgh.
The artists who worked with the group were Richie Cumming and Fraser Gray. The young people were part of Muirhouse Youth Development Group and the workshops took place at North Edinburgh Arts centre.
A Piece of Our Mind is part of Frontiers, a multi-arts youth project exploring the theme of conflict with over 100 young people from diverse social, religious and ethnic backgrounds around Edinburgh. www.tinderboxfrontiers.co.uk.
