“It’s worth people seeing the history of what you’ve got here...and what Street Stories means to different people. It’s really good. If you don't try and be creative nothing’s going to happen.”


“I first saw the Street Stories concept . . . and thought what an amazing impact the project had. It combined such talented local artists, a layer of augmented-reality and brought the streetscape to life with vibrant art installations. It presented a true celebration of the place, the talented people, heritage, culture, and opportunity. I knew I had to make it happen in Wolverhampton.”

“After Covid, the high-street has gone down a level so it's not as appealing, but with Street Stories it gives it an advantage to brighten up an area and makes people want to go there… It’s a chance for my work to be out there and be viewed by a larger audience.”

Eve Whitfield Digital Artist

“Street Stories is an innovative project which helps to highlight commercial space, create an attractive environment and give residents and visitors an insight into their city’s heritage. By safely moving visitors around the artworks it encourages footfall across the city, and the augmented reality feature adds another dimension to the artworks, providing an added draw and making it a great outdoor activity for all ages to engage with.”

Simon Jenner BID Leicester Director

“We’ve been working hard to create commissioning opportunities for local artists and creatives affected by the pandemic through our digital commissions and grants scheme. We were only too happy to get involved in this new project which will not only showcase Stirling’s talent but also draw people to our city centre at a time when retail needs a boost.”

Kevin Harrison Manager of Scene Stirling

“Street Stories is an inclusive community project, so it was great to work with other artists to help improve the city. It was so exciting seeing my artwork of the suffragette Alice Hawkins come to life with a multi-sensory animation, and to see my artwork interpreted in an original and innovative way.”

Tim Fowler Artist
