I’m dreaming of summer rain.

This week Birmingham Settlement was proud to unveil a new art project at the Centre for the Aston Family called Dreaming of Summer Rain. The project was inspired by ideas shared through a series of workshops with members of the local community and includes the hopes and dreams of the community, a sense of belonging, and a celebration of different cultures. The piece contains a wide variety of colours and patterns that represent the many different people who live in the local community. The piece was designed to brighten up the atrium of the Centre for the Aston Family and lift the spirits of those who visit us there. Dreaming of Summer Rain was designed by Melanie Tomlinson with the contribution of Birmingham Settlement’s service users.
