“Community 2 U” Deloraine, Tasmania. Project developer/facilitator
A mosaic project connecting local high school students with Deloraine House, a local Neighbourhood House.
Deloraine House wanted a mosaic that identified with people’s idea of community.
A partnership was created with year 8 art students at Deloraine High School. They designed and made the mosaics at school. They were then mounted on the front wall at Deloraine House and connected with wavy line mosaic.
The whole mosaic was inspired by the ‘share’ icon of 3 dots connected by two lines commonly seen on websites and social media platforms.
