Collaborate with artists to decorate the Love & Hope Boat that is touring the city centre over the summer on its journey to the grand finale on Saturday 16 September.
The Love & Hope Boat is inspired by the boat held aloft in the hand of The Amazonian Caiman God, symbolising the touching love story of Jason Wilsher-Mills’ parents. A retired boat from Pugneys Country Park has been upcycled for the project. Fondly dubbed ‘HMS Pugness’ by the team at Pugneys Country Park, the boat offers a chance for people to contribute artwork, inspired by love and hope, as it sets sail across the district.
See the finished boat and climb aboard in Wakefield City Centre as part of The Wakefield Sculpture Trail finale event The Gathering.
The Wakefield Sculpture Trail is an exciting series of sculptures across the city centre. The sculptures have been created by artists Annie Morris, Andy Holden, Halima Cassell, Jason Wilsher-Mills and Ro Robertson and are here for everyone to enjoy.
Over the summer, explore the sculptures and take part in creative activities with a celebration event on Saturday 16 September to welcome the sculptures to their new home of Wakefield.
All events are FREE and suitable for all ages.
