Aberystwyth Promenade mural launched after Ceredigion Youth Service design competition

Published

on

A LARGE colourful mural was launched on 27 February 2019 on the Promenade in Aberystwyth. The mural was designed by young people from Ceredigion who won a design competition run by the Ceredigion Youth Service.

In December 2018, Ceredigion Youth Service and the council’s Economy and Regeneration team called on young people aged between 8-25 to help spruce up an area along Aberystwyth Promenade by sharing their creative ideas. The area which regularly attracts vandalism has now been replaced with a large, colourful mural reflecting the heritage of Aberystwyth, and what Aberystwyth means to young people.

The response to the design competition was fantastic. A panel of four judges chose four winners out of many imaginative designs. The panel enjoyed elements from all four designs, which were combined into one large design by renowned professional graffiti artist, Lloyd the Graffiti.

Councillor Catrin Miles is the Cabinet member responsible for Learning Services. She said, “The mural is fantastic and is a celebration of Aberystwyth. The young designers have helped to add a new and exciting place to Aberystwyth. Many congratulations to them.”

The winning designs were created by; Daisy Anderson from Penparcau Youth Club, Gwenno Evans from Aberystwyth University, Phoebe Hinks from Ysgol Penglais and Carys Owen from Ysgol Penweddig. The winning designers were presented with a prize at the launch. The prizes were donated by Ceredigion County Council and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
