Lincoln homeless youth artwork projected in city market

A charity which helps young homeless people in Lincoln has projected their artwork on the side of the indoor market building.

With the help of art company The Collaborators, Framework took the thoughts and feelings of five youths within its care and had their art projected onto the old Central Market building on Sincil Street.

The team of five drew out the thoughts and feelings that make them who they are over the course of two weeks in two workshops, in order to build up a film to be projected onto the building.

The participants explore the words in their favourite books, songs, poems and films, and process them into a variety of artwork, including paintings, and drawings, which were then filmed.

Louise Hart, Team Leader with Framework, said: “This has been a really good thing for the young people taking part.

“When you come from a very difficult background it’s not always easy to express yourself in a positive way, but being part of a process like this with such a spectacular end product has been a really good experience for those taking part.”

Kate Genever from The Collaborators added: “We work with young adults across the city and region to find out more their ideas and interests.

“This latest projection event will be a brilliant opportunity to showcase interesting ideas and celebrate the talented people who have taken part in the project.”
