Together We Are Stronger art installation
Working with Love Yeovil and funded by South Somerset District Council, a display has been installed at 96 High Street, the former St Margaret’s Hospice Charity Shop. Permission had been granted by the property owner for this very inspiring piece of artwork to be installed on the exterior of the building.
The artwork consists of a series of posters, printed with quotes from the ‘Together We Are Stronger’ podcast. A selection of inspiring words from those original interviews have been used to create the installation.
