Help! Calling all Members of the Armley Community
November 5 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
This Sunday come down and help a local artist try and repaint a mural that has been defaced. Calling all members of Armley community and Leeds folks and artists who would like to volunteer and support a local artist, even if it’s for an hour or two!
For some context, over the last couple of weeks we have been chatting with a local armley artist @jaydonrowbottom about his new mural down by the canal. Unfortunately a lot of the attention and media surrounding the mural has been negative as the artwork was defaced the day before it was meant to be unvieled.
Whilst the situation itself is complicated surrounding the tagging and response from local graf artists to the mural, we do appreciate the toll that takes on an artist. As an organisation that feels quite imbedded in the Armley community we reached out to him along with @armley_action_team so that we could see if there was any way in which we could support him.
The conclusion was to try and bring people together to help save the mural and support him. Our work in Armley has always been people centered because the community in Armley is like no other, so please do come down and help us help him!
DM us if you need more details/exact location or to let us know you’ll be popping down on Sunday, anytime between 10am and 3pm!
