Paper People Bradford – public art installation in City Park
Saturday 18th August 2018
A public artwork made by the public.
800 full size Paper People artworks and 250m bunting made of plastic collected from the beach in Lesvos will hang outside for one day only.
Paper People Bradford hopes to blur preconceived ideas of identity by presenting human beings as individual artworks.
The full scale Paper People artworks have been made in colleges, universities, schools and refugee support groups in the UK, and schools and refugee camps abroad. The bunting was made in conjunction with work created at the Pikpa Refugee camp in Greece.
