Spotlight on: Colour in Space from 2015

Let's go back in time, and space, to Brighton in 2015, where people came together and coloured in a 6 metre long graphic by Woody. Woody’s Colour In Club brought its cosmos of uncluttered graphics and coloured pencils to Jubilee Library in the heart of Brighton.   Humans of all ages sat down together and collaborated on a super-sized artwork to celebrate World Mental Health Day and the launch of City Reads 2015.
