Olympic dressing reworked to create giant’s head

A giant’s head is peeking over Gravesend’s Civic Centre to promote panto season thanks to an arts project to recycle some of the £30,000 Olympic dressing the council received for the 2012 Games.
The face was designed and made by visual artist Stuart Thompson.
Melanie Norris, director of communities for Gravesham council, said: “The 2012 Olympics was about community and national pride and the Borough should certainly be proud of its achievements during the year. The recycling arts project marks the end of a spectacular year by engaging with the community to achieve something that all residents can enjoy during the festive period.”
