On June 19th, Peer Group unveiled their ‘Forget-Me-Not‘ Morph designed by Irish artist Pili Duncan, which was located outside of Southwark Cathedral looking over the Thames, in support of the charity Whizz-Kidz.
Born in Dublin, Pili graduated from the National College of Art & Design and was awarded a scholarship to the Academy of Art College, San Francisco by the Scholarship Exchange Board. She is currently a teacher of design on the prestigious Animation course at Ballyfermot College. Since 1996, she has been part of the teaching team which taught many award winning animation graduates.
The Morph sculptures were a canvas for conversations about diversity and inclusion for wheelchair users. Therefore, as part of Morph’s Epic Art Adventure in London, Whizz-Kidz used the Art Trail to encourage the public, business community and young people to envision what a more inclusive world might look like for young wheelchair users. Their vision is a society in which every young wheelchair user is mobile, enabled and included, helping young people through support and confidence-building experiences.
This year, Peer Group were very excited to have had the opportunity to participate in such a great cause, supporting the charity in the Morph Art Adventurer, promoting Whizz-Kidz’ vision and raising as much money as possible.
