RE-FORMATION was a community art project celebrating and promoting young people’s ideas, skills and achievements as part of Scottish Government’s Year of Young People 2018.
It was a large-scale city wide partnership project, co-designed and delivered by young people from school and community groups. The project successfully transformed the pedestrian area of Reform Street, covering the cobbles with inspirational words and images to create a vibrant and uplifting atmosphere for the wider community. 10 community groups created individual designs that collectively carpeted the street.
The art installation was an ambitious and exciting display, demonstrating young people’s perspective of youth culture. The artwork included themes such as equality, diversity, ambition, inclusion and explored stereotypes and mental health.
The project culminated in a live event on Saturday 29th September and Sunday 30th September 2018 where participating groups transferred their designs onto the street as a temporary art installation.
