Digital Wishing Wells on Mere Lane!

As part of our North Liverpool collaborations with our Healthy Spaces colleagues at FACT a second new neighbourhood Health Centre opened last month on Mere Lane in Breckfield complete with it’s own digital wishing well!

Over a period of a couple of months tenantspin worked with Breckfield and North Everton Neighbourhood Council and residents from across the neighbourhood to collect anonymous wishes and handprints to put into the artwork in the centre.

The piece is the work of Alistair Eilbeck and James Bailey who are also exhibiting at the moment in The Humble Market at FACT. The work features a digital display of handprints donated by local people during the workshops run by tenantspin, artist Jonathan Browning and positive communities worker Charanjeet Birdie which too place at the wonderful Rotunda College, Vauxhall Neighbourhood Council, BNENC, Maritime Court and Thirlemere Court all the vicinity of the health Centre. Wishes include perfect jobs, wellness for family and friends, lotto wins and wishes for superhero status!

Visitors to the centre can donate their handprints and wishes to the artwork via an onsite process in this most special of health centres! To hear the wishes left by participants listen here and to see some of the hands donated see here.
