Calling on the Nation to say Thank You

We would like to show our appreciation to the NHS & key workers by creating an outdoor Thank You mural in Eccleston Yards, a renowned hub for creativity and wellbeing just minutes from Victoria Station.

We want to thank everyone including but not limited to the NHS, Police, supermarket workers, farmers and emergency services for their enormous efforts. So we’re inviting professional and amateur artists of any age in the UK to submit a mural design to be replicated by a professional artist on the most prominent wall in the Eccleston Yards courtyard. This currently features a celebrated 5-metre-high mural of Frida Kahlo by London street artist Zabou.
