A NEW mosaic wall feature was unveiled at St.
Luke's Family Centre in Twinbrook last week, reflecting
community life, brightening up the area and making it more
attractive to the local community.
£12,901.00, part of the Arts Council's £3
million Re-imaging Communities Programme (on behalf of the
Shared Communities Consortium), was awarded to St. Luke's Family
Centre for 'Cara House Community Smile Project' in December
The mosaic was developed through a series of
cross-community workshops with Ballymac's Friendship women's
group from East Belfast, along with four primary schools, a
group for young people and one supporting people with
disabilities from the Twinbrook area.
Describing the work Fiona Diver, St Luke's
Family Centre Co-ordinator said: "This project has been a
fantastic opportunity for the Family Centre and the community as
a whole. Over 150 people from all ages and abilities have been
involved in the design and construction of a piece of permanent
artwork, and we have worked with many people from the local
community and cross community also.
"We are very hopeful that today's launch not
just about the end of this project, bin about the beginning of
more community an activities through St Luke's Family Centre,
and that the community will enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed
working on it."
