It all started when...
We organised three globally renowned street artists to paint a stunning new mural on the relaunched “Great Eastern Art Wall” on Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch. The artists Gary Stranger, Pref and Ben Eine painted the phrase “More Than Words” in their respective typographic styles in support of the prison literacy charity Shannon Trust.
Shannon Trust has supported peer-mentored reading programs since its inception in 1997, which have helped thousands of prisoners learn to read. Literacy in the prison population is staggeringly low at 50% and this represents a major barrier to rehabilitation and employment.
This mural was organised by Global Street Art in partnership with the Stage.
