Community Mosaic at The Curve – Seeds of Hope
A Community Mosaic Project, designed and created by members of the community affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy has been unveiled at The Curve Community Centre.
Seeds of Hope, the name of the mosaic, was produced by local residents and facilitated by artist Emily Fuller, as part of the Association for Cultural Advancement through VISUAL Art’s (ACAVA) Well-being programme running at The Curve.
Emily explains the meaning within the artwork. “The wolf represents the frustration and anger in the aftermath of the tragedy. The wolf is howling at the moon, his breath visible. The building has a rainbow of windows, below is a river of tears.
“Growing out of the ground surrounding the wolf are the fresh vines and flowers of new growth; the seeds of hope.
“Above sits the golden elephant in the moon. She is a symbol of strength and perseverance and a reminder that we shall never forget.”
Lisa Nash, Assistant Programme Manager for ACAVA and the Art for Well-being programme at The Curve said: “It has been a really positive experience working with friends, neighbours and residents from the local and wider community to design and produce this beautiful, symbolic mosaic.”
