Potential Together

Ben Connors @benconnors was keen to work with young men and women locally. Ben was interested in the idea of creating an alternative map of Thornton Heath and its stories, based on sound, character, people, words, vibe, pattern, and drawing on the idea of Thornton Heath as a ‘living organism’. His mural  'Potential, Together' represents some of the young people’s perspectives on their area and was heavily influenced by conversations with them and their pride in CR7, capturing the current diversity and energy of the area through shapes, patterns and recognisable symbols. His piece intends to welcome people into Thornton Heath.
