Jason has been out painting again! This time with a slightly more abstract concept, something we’ve been calling the “GBY Monster”.
We wanted to give appreciation to grassroots projects in the city, projects that have little or no help from funding or external bodies but ones that have been done just for the sheer passion of it all. We’ve used the incredible The Green Backyard as inspiration for this but it’s also a nod towards many other projects like The Glass Onion, The Muddy Collective and Positive Outlook Records to name but a few.
We’ve dubbed the people around the monster “Dozers” & “Anti-Dozers”, a bit of a Fraggle Rock reference there! 🙂 The Dozers represent the tireless volunteers and workers of Peterborough that have helped build and shape the city into what it has become today and given it a rich, sometimes untold history to be proud of. The Anti-Dozers represent those that have sometimes stood in the way of progression or have held back cultural development.
