Details

Over a ten week period in 2012, a group from the city’s homeless community worked with artist Richard Wheater, on a project that aimed to develop their visual language through light, to communicate their predicament to the wider public.

The results were a series of extraordinary neon signs.

As part of Long Divisions ‘Manifesto for a New Wakefield’ these 4 signs will be installing in shop windows around Wakefield for a month.

Locations: 28 Wood Street, Wakefield Beer Exchange, The Bank – 40 Westgate and 4 Almshouse Lane

Timings: Launching Artwalk night, on show for a month.
