Artist Traci Howard has been working with a community group in West End/Braunstone Gate area of the city. Traci isan illustrator and sculptor of small whimsical things and met with a group at 96 degrees coffee shop and later at The Archway to create small collages representing themselves or Leicester. These pieces are displayed in pieces of wood, representing trees in a forest. Traci then went out into the local community to take photographs and interview people on their thoughts on community. Using what she gathered she will tie these pieces together using red thread, hand spun and dyed in her hometown of Johannesburg, to symbolise unity and bringing people together in the many things that connect us which undoubtedly out weight what makes us different.
