This is the question our project is asking LGBTQIA+ young people and staff at Northern. In a series of workshops artists Emma Colbert and Leo Soph Welton have been gathering ideas to inspire two new artworks for Prescot and Newton-le-Willows train stations. The artworks will carry a positive message of how we can all support each other in creating safer, more welcoming places to live. The project also aims to strengthen the local LGBTQIA+ community so that our young people have the support they deserve.

For Knowsley Flower Show, the artists have created limited edition Be An Ally seed cards, available for attendees to take away for free and plant at home.

Part of Knowsley Flower Show: the largest free horticultural Show in the North West and has been enjoyed by thousands of visitors over the past 24 years.

Supported by Homotopia. Created in collaboration with Northern, Lee Cooper Foundation and Newton Community Centre.
