Look Up was a visual arts project aimed at the regeneration of unpainted and empty walls in the town centre in a way that was both creative and engaging. The idea follows trends set by other towns and cities in Wales. The project was funded through the Townscape Heritage Initiative and the Special Regeneration Fund.
The project engaged a team of local artists and professional painters with the backing of Carnegie House, Bridgend Arts, Bridgend County Borough Council, Bridgend Town Council and local businesses.
Although street art is well-established in Cardiff and Bristol, this was the first such project to take place in Bridgend.
Among the pieces included was a mural painted by children from Llangewydd Junior School, which depicts Bridgend.
These beautiful murals can be seen throughout Bridgend Town Centre creating moments of surprise and joy, just remember to look up!
