Abu Bakr School – Hippo Gallery

The Hippo project was a young people’s project to showcase their views about what they like to do creatively and how creativity affects their lives. Art worker Richard Franks supported by Walsall Creative Development Team worked with 5 groups of young people to ask these questions and to illustrate their views creatively in a variety of ways including the decoration of 100 hippo images inspired by the famous hippo sculpture in Walsall Town centre created by John Wood in 1972. The project culminated in a summer arts activities programme and exhibition of the hippo herd in an empty shop in The Saddlers Centre in August.
