An arts event with a political undertone came to Preston city centre during Saturday.Advertisement
The latest offering in the Summer Saturdays events, sponsored by ourselves at Blog Preston, was Making a Mark.
A collective of artists took over the Flag Market and the Harris for a range of music, art installations and creations.
Centre stage was a large piece of artwork made from donated food showcasing the city’s reliance on foodbanks.
Created by Tim Saunders the tinned sculpture was all being donated to the city’s foodbanks after the event.
Mr Saunders said: “Numbers are sometimes difficult to get, but people visualising the issue really created engagement.
“So many people decided to go and buy tins and add them to the work and be part of the creative process.
“It was truly a colloboration made by the wonderful community of Preston.
“We added around 1,000 tins during the Saturday.”
