Over the last few years, I’ve been supporting The Mighty Creatives’ annual ‘Be Mighty, Be Creatives’ fundraising campaigns. This year is no exception. Called The Mighty (Un)Mute, we’re aiming to raise £5,000 to support the artistic creation for one of ten Globe Sculptures in The World Reimagined art trail across Leicester, one of the most multicultural cities in the UK.
On 5th October The TMC staff team supported the campaign by taking part in the Mighty (UN)Mute, a day-long vow of silence, which saw us taking a Journey of Discovery of all ten Globe Sculptures around Leicester. This is what we discovered:
Laura-Kate Pontefract: Mother Africa at Leicester Station.
Roy Meats: The Reality of Being Enslaved at Leicester Museum and Art Gallery
Natasha Muluswela – Leicester Community Globe at Victoria Park
Lou Boyce – Stolen Legacy: the Rebirth of a Nation at Medway Community Primary School
Marcus Dove ,Abolition and Emancipation at Highfields Centre
Richard Rawlins – A Complex Triangle Indeed at Orton Square
Zita Holbourne – Still We Strive at the Clocktower
Lakwena Maciver – Staying Power)at Stephen Lawrence Research Centre
Jarvis Brookfield – From Roots To Fruit at Leicester Town Hall.
Here they are in situ, in all their glory.
Or if neither of these is possible (and heaven knows we’re all in tough financial times right now), then anything you can do to share and shout about the campaign would be equally welcomed and appreciated.
