The artwork in this panel celebrates community and shows people actively embracing one another. Inspired by an article describing tolerance within Leicester as hard-won and purposeful. The actions of this community are not born out passiveness and apathy but are determined and resolute.
When standing in front of the artwork, anyone can see themselves reflected in this community as the faces are left blank. The characters hold hands which is symbolic of unity and is a nod to a time post Covid-19 when holding hands and physically embracing other people is possible.
