At our recent open day, we unveiled an exhibition inspired by the street art of Slinkachu. Entitled ‘A Little Advice’, it aimed to use miniature figures more usually seen on train sets to articulate the kinds of social issues and situations which our advisers regularly assist with.
The scenes – exhibited live, and as photographs – created real talking points, and helped people gain a greater understanding of our work, which often can be difficult, when we offer confidentiality when people approach us for advice.
We have included some of the scenes which generated the most interest on this blog post. You can find the full set on our Pinterest site at https://uk.pinterest.com/hartCAB/a-little-advice/ together with the accompanying descriptions for each scene, and links to advice and information on the Citizens Advice website. If you have an account, you will need to log-on to see them. If you do not have an account, you will need to create an account, which is very simple.
If you would rather not create an account, you can see a ‘potted version’ of the set on Instagram, at our account https://www.instagram.com/citizensadvicehart/ All of the photos are there, but the descriptions are shorter, and do not include the links.
And we are planning to exhibit the photos around the local area when we get the opportunity. We hope the scenes give you an insight into the kind of issues we deal with regularly #aLittleAdvice
