Signs Express (York) were proud to be involved with a collaborative, community art and woodland project in the heart of Lincolnshire. The project which is the initiative of Christopher Wiles has seen over 2,500 school children take part in an arts workshop exploring issues such of growth, sustainability and biodiversity and Signs Express (York) were one of eleven Signs Express franchises to be involved with the project.
Christopher stated, "I have been lucky enough to have a number of companies sponsor various elements of The Woodland Project. It is really heartening to see how businesses, like Signs Express, are willing to support cultural and environmental projects such as mine, especially in the current economic climate. Small amounts of support can make a really big difference to artists and mean that we can engage members of our local communities in activities that otherwise wouldn't be able to take place." This month, Christopher is unveiling a Woodland Project Exhibition at The Collection in Lincoln, where every child’s leaf artwork, which have been printed free of charge by Signs Express centres up and down the UK, will form the centerpiece. Ian Dawson of Signs Express (York) said, “it is always a pleasure to support initiatives which engage children and make us all more aware of our environment and cultural responsibilities, it is pleasing to know that as a group we can help such projects.” The exhibition will open at The Collection, Lincolnshire’s archaeology museum on Saturday 21st January and will be welcoming visitors until Sunday 19th February. Entry is free and everyone is welcome, learn more here: https://www.thecollectionmuseum.com/exhibitions-and-events/view/a-woodland-project-a-work-in-process
