People gather on the field of St Michaels Estate in darkness to light up the X.

It can be hard to find the light amongst all the darkness we are enduring and witnessing across our communities local and global. As 2023 comes to a close we are sharing a moment captured as part of our collaborative project – ‘X Marks The Core’- with CORE Youth Service and artist Veronica Dyas. This project is supporting the young people of CORE Youth Service to respond to the challenges of where they live so that their vision is part of the future regeneration of their neighbourhood.
