M41 Community Art Project
We did it
On 9th September 2018 we successfully raised £275 with 10 supporters in 28 days

Our aim is to purchase and install two impressive 7-8 ft tree carving sculptures, a mystical throne and a Japanese Princess, in the M41 area

by Urmston Partnership in Urmston, Greater Manchester, England

We have been offered the chance to acquire two amazing wood carvings, at a massive discount, as long as they are displayed in a public space for all to see. Our preferred site is Flixton Gardens, who have agreed to house the sculptures pending council approval. We aim to raise £900 for the acquisition of the sculptures, plus £300 to set them securely in place. If we reach the target we will set a stretch target of another £400 to develop a Japanese garden around the Japanese Princess sculpture.

The Urmston Wombles and Impact Tuition have offered to sort the transportation and the installation of the sculptures on concrete bases. 

There is a lot of research showing how using green spaces such as parks, gardens and meadows can have health benefits and that pleasant environments, which include having public art, can improve the quality of peoples lives and improve mental wellbeing.

  • The environment around you plays a significant role in your mental capital or cognitive abilities
  • Living in a safe, green, conducive environment is seen to have positive effects on physical health and mental well-being
  • Stress, depression, frustration, work or family life imbalance, learning disabilities, cognition problems… To a certain extent all these ailments also occur due to threatening environmental conditions
  • The greener, the better… Clean, nurturing and safe environment leads to overall sense of physical-mental health and well-being.

We believe this project fulfils these criteria.

Please donate and help make M41 a better place to live.

Oh and we think the kids will love it too.
