THE RAINBOW EFFECT
Medway Council have commissioned ten local creatives to create a range of pioneering contemporary artwork to support essential coronavirus (COVID-19) messages. The artwork will also thank all of Medway’s key workers who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to help keep residents safe.
From large murals on the side of public buildings, important safety messages with superheroes, to music in public toilets, the council has commissioned innovative projects to help keep residents safe.
The artworks are a reminder of how the creative sector can help raise awareness of vital public health messages in different ways for a variety of audiences.
The commissions also support Medway’s bid for UK City of Culture 2025, as well as the area’s newly adopted cultural strategy.
