Sure Start commissioned Charlotte Newson to create a mural for the interior of Cornerstone, in Salford: to encourage use of the building, animating its interior with colour and child friendly images.

Cornerstone housed the regeneration team and a variety of services to the community.

The mural consisted of five panels with differing themes and friendly, simple images, such as flowers and cartoon-esque images of dragons. Shown here is the café area (dragons) and play-area (flowers).

Scale: Total area 40ft x 4ft (12.2 m x 1.2 m)
