Giant new street art brightens up Union Street

A colourful new mural is brightening up Union Street thanks to dedicated community organisation Nudge Community Builders.

Nudge was set up by local people who have been volunteering and leading Stonehouse Action in Plymouth for many years.

After kick-starting the Street Party – as well as other projects at The Clipper, The Plot and Millennium – the team created Union Corner and are inspired and asked by their community to do more.

The group is here to grow and build on all that local knowledge and experience to really make a difference in the area, as well as make sure the local community benefits from changes in a way that is unique and special.

The scaffolding finally came down in July to reveal the giant artwork on the side of Union Corner.

Hannah Sloggett, co-director of Nudge, said this exciting project wouldn’t have been possible without funding from the Local Trust called Creative Civic Change.

The mural itself was designed by William Luz and Neasden Control Centre, and features images of hands, smiley faces, eyes and other geometric shapes.

The artists worked with users of Union Corner to create a vibrant and dynamic image that people can enjoy from all the way down Union Street.

The Nudge team still has a year left of their Creative Civic Change funding, so expect more exciting projects along Union Street during the next 12 months.
