120 Hopes...for 2021!

In collaboration with West End Centre in Aldershot and Rushmoor Borough Council, artists Susan Merrick, Lorna Rees and Candice Camacho created 120 painted, but blank, placards and delivered them to local Aldershot schools, Alderwood School and St Michaels Junior school, where pupils have turned them into messages of hope.

All of the children's placards with their hopes for 2021 have been weatherproofed and are now on display throughout Aldershot town centre for everyone to enjoy!

Can't get into Aldershot town centre to see the display?

Keep your eyes peeled as we share them on social media, or view them all in our online gallery, here on Culture on Call!
