tRAILblazers Project Makes The Press
‘Together We Are tRAILblazers’ is a unique photography project undertaken and to be displayed at every station from Wigan Wallgate, through Kirkby, to Moorfields.
The project engaged students from Kirkby High School and Hope School and College to travel the line, taking photos that represent their views and perceptions of rail travel, visiting locations that they could encourage their peers to use rail to access.
The students’ work promotes safe and responsible use of the line for other young people. as well as giving them locations to visit that provide free or discounted youth activities.
Tuesday 6th February saw the art work installed at Rainford, Upholland, Orrell, Pemberton & Wigan Wallgate stations. If you are travelling along the Wigan to Kirkby Line keep an eye out for these colourful pieces of art.
The Wigan Post picked up on the story and published an article about the project on Saturday 24th February 2018. To read the full article click on this link: https://www.wigantoday.net/news/education/passengers-on-track-to-view-works-of-art-1-9036966
