        Lighting up the Streets in the Sky

        21 March 2019
        A 2 minute read by Mark Latham

        You might’ve read in our recent blog that Park Hill has had a musical written about it.

        Now, in celebration of the launch of the play, Sheffield-based, internationally renowned street artist Kid Acne has designed an incredible light installation which has been projected on the side of our scheme. The impressive light display was on show last night to formally launch of the play.

        Kid Acne, who was born in Malawi before being raised in these parts, spent his formative years creating graffiti and making experimental hip-hop. He’s since become a stalwart of the international street art movement, painting large scale murals across the world – his distinctive style’s been captured in this new projection.

        As well as an homage to the stage production, it’s also a cool little nod to the work we did with Kid Acne 10 years ago, when we were just starting out on our journey at Park Hill, planning the first phase of regeneration that has seen it become the thriving place it is today.

        It’s one of many, many art partnerships we’ve established at our communities over the years – see more here.
