ABOUT THE MURAL
Michele Curtis worked with members of Women Together to co-design a mural that represented the values of the group. Taking inspiration from community, strong women, sharing support and togetherness.
Located on high pavement, it was important that the mural sent a message of solidarity to the women of Basildon.
