Our Place Skate park gets a more inclusive makeover thanks to Heritage Grants

Young people from across Knowsley were able to take part in a Graffiti art project in Our Place, Huyton thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, through One Knowsley. The aim of the project was for the young people to learn more about the artistry of graffiti and its connection to skating culture, so they could produce artwork that is representative of them and can be proudly displayed in the skate park area.

The resulting graffiti art is amazing and local young people were able to learn a lot about the heritage of skate culture as well as skills of research, teamwork and graffiti art.
