In 2017, Peterborough Presents commissioned Paper Rhino to create a brand new mural inspired by and celebrating the local stories of Lincoln Road.
A panel of local residents from Millfield were given a menu of projects to discuss and choose from. Each project was very different, and it was very interesting to listen to the discussions about what residents of Millfield would like to see. Everyone was very passionate about the businesses and buildings along Lincoln Road, and agreed that they would love to see it develop into a Peterborian Brick Lane which is full of colour, so Paper Rhino’s project was a perfect fit.
In order to decide on the phrases and figures in the mural, Paper Rhino ran some open consultation workshop with members of the public to discuss local legends, thoughts, and stories over some cake. The mural was then designed and implemented over August 2017.
