Nechells POD is taking part in a community arts project which will have over 100 decorated bears sited across Birmingham over the summer. There will be a bear trail so that members of the public can find the Bears and hopefully they will appreciate all the hard work that has gone into decorating them. Every bear tells a story and our two bears , one large and one small , reflect the importance of being a good neighbour and the various strands that weave a community together. We held a community arts event where local residents worked on designs and our artist Claire is now transferring the ideas onto the Bears. She has done lots of work on PODdington, as you can see from the pictures. Rainbow Rory is the baby bear who isn’t quite ready to be shown to the public. Look out for our bears on the trail, you will notice them as they are the most beautiful and friendly bears, just like our Nechells community!
