RNLI Big Art Project

The Big Art Project
RNLI Training College, West Quay Road, Poole, Dorset

April 2003

Along with local artist Antonia Phillips and in conjunction with The Study Gallery, this was a project co-ordinated by Rob Smith from Poole and Bournemouth Arts Development Team to decorate the hoardings surrounding the RNLI Lifeboat College whilst it was under construction. A competition was opened up to all the schools in Dorset and from the 35 that took part, 8 were chosen to work closely with Antonia and Nina on designing and painting the boards. The hoardings were in place for just over a year, after which a selection were chosen to go on display as an exhibition within the reception area of the college when it was completed.
