To paint a mural on blank brick wall in Handfield Road, Waterloo

Waterloo Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We want to create a mural on the wall at the side of Waterloo Primary school. There is some research showing that street art has a calming effect on traffic. This street has a problem with speeding vehicles, particularly concerning in the part nearest the school. The theme of the mural would be firstly to thank drivers for paying attention and following the speed limit. A secondary theme would be historical connected to the local area and the environment. This is to reflect the two themes identified in the Sefton Borough of Culture 2020 initiative. This project is also linked in with the Merseyside Police Safer Streets campaign.

What we'll deliver:

  • A mural approx. 50' x 10' along Handfield Road
  • Safer streets and improved air quality
  • Pride in the area and its history

Why it's a great idea:

Cleaner air and safer roads in the area around Waterloo Primary School. There is strong evidence that good quality street art acts as a deterrent to low grade crime and anti-social behaviour in the immediate area, and builds community pride and a feeling of belonging.

Steps to get it done:

  • Completion of one mural

In many cities street art can help create an environment where small start up, arts based businesses and street markets can thrive. An example is the Granville Island Market in Vancouver, Canada.
