Public space to promote diversity
A NEW public space celebrating the city’s diversity and local culture is to be unveiled.
The ChatterBox Pavilion is a public art installation to be located at the end of Guildhall Walk that will be in place from Friday, September 27 . It will create a public space designed to promote multicultural integration.
The installation consists of a series of timber frames with several spinning panels that can be pushed by the users to reveal their ‘two opposite faces’. Users can learn about migration through interactive images, artwork, illustrations and textual information.
The project is part of a longterm partnership between the University of Portsmouth’s School of Architecture and the city council.
Councillor Darren Sanders, cabinet member for housing, said: ‘It’s great to see so many groups come together to create such a useful and interesting piece of art, which transforms this unused space. We should be celebrating the diversity and multiculturalism of residents in Portsmouth.’
