Imagination Alley, Absolutely Cultured © Tom Arran


Imagination Alley is a mural spanning 120 metres and is part of a social action project which will also involve improvements to pocket spaces that are frequently fly-tipped

Volunteers have been working with local partners and residents in The Shires to make positive changes to their neighbourhoodThis project is part of a series that have been taking place since 2018 that use creative approaches to respond to what local people told us matter to them most. 

The mural design was created and led on by Andy Pea, who had help from volunteers and residents of all ages, coming together to contribute on various open paint days. The hope is that this colourful backdrop will now provide inspiration for the younger generation and encourage them to use their imagination for play.  

In progress since October 2020
