Walk of Affirmation

Walk of Affirmation

2015

The Walk of Affirmation (WOA!) Teamed up with The Light Project (Glyn, Rachel and Izzy) and Holy Trinity Blacon and asked local people how they experience feeling valued. For people in Blacon, people felt valued through their relationships with family and by helping others. 

We looked at making a film or a street mural and finally decided on an installation which would be set up in a local building for local people to visit. The Walk of Affirmation  as a way of allowing people to be affirmed and valued as they walked through it. The wooden tiles with affirmations on playing the part of the voice of encouragement we all value.

The tiles asaid thing like: ‘I am enough’, ‘well done!’, ‘You’re amazing’, Thanks for being you’ etc.

Installed at Holy trinity Blacon, St Peter’s at the Cross in Chester and the Greenbelt Arts festival.

Taking the unwanted and unused and giving it a chance to help make a new life.

Everything deserves a chance to play its part and make a difference. This project is about refurbishing, up cycling and renovating objects and giving them the opportunity to be used and appreciated. It’s also about allowing different people to offer different gifts they have to make a difference in the world simple by being themselves and playing a part.
