wordsofwisdomWORDS OF WISDOM – was created to coincide with Word2016 festival and in partnership with City North N4 and Telford Homes. A multitude of different local women’s voices – young and old, past and present – came together in this poetic artwork for the hoardings on Wells Terrace – to share pearls of wisdom and a wealth of experiences gathered across the decades. Work was created as part of Dispensing Wisdom – an arts and heritage project by All Change working with Manor Gardens Centre. Poetry and images were developed with young women and a range of local women’s groups, working with artists Kat Francois, Marysa Dowling and Mila Sanders. The hoardings were designed by illustrator Rebecca Hurst.
