We’re very proud to have been given permission to share this piece of work. It’s by Street Artist Nyces and was created last year as part of a project in Peterborough for the Diaspora Arts and Education Charity. This has come to reflect other issues arising during lockdown, being used across the world to support the Black Lives Matter movement. As a neighbouring artist, and someone we’ve known for many years, we wanted to share his work and this work in particular for the times we’re going through. See more of his work on the “Nearby” pages and on Facebook here
It is displayed in the Minecraft map next to Museum Square and the Church. This space would be perfect for artwork in real life having “blind” windows and a large wall area. The museum is the home of Thomas Clarkson’s story, the abolitionist who worked all his life against slavery.
