In 2004 the Lodge Arts Centre worked in partnership with Havant Borough Council and Waterlooville town manager and the local community centre to create a mural (X 2 Approx 50ft x 9ft) in the underpass in Waterlooville town centre Hampshire.
The mural was painted by three artists and one lead artist/ coordinator who are employed by the Arts Lodge (Art & Soul Traders).
Local school children (and the public) helped the artists to design and paint the mural in a series of consultations workshops and painting workshops on site
The project took place over a two month period.
