The artist, Coventry’s Graduate Placement Sandra Owens and some of the participants will come together to celebrate their achievements with the public and visitors to War Memorial Park. Following the sharing event, Gizella will be commissioned to produce a new art work which will be included in the regional touring Making Moves II exhibition in 2012. Elements of the display will continue to be exhibited in the Visitors Centre until the New Year.
