A street artist and musician has created a stunning art installation in Rugby to help promote the work of global innovators, Practical Action.

London-based Natasha Awuku is showcasing her work at the organisation’s Albert Street headquarters in Rugby town centre to support a UK-Government-backed public appeal.

The spray paintings include the top half of the earth, used as a symbol of unity to represent the home that we live in.

Natasha created the art pieces in just four days to help support the international development organisation and promote their work with farmers in the Himalayas to become more resilient to extreme weather and coronavirus through a combination of ingenious ideas.

Natasha said “As a supporter of Practical Action, I wanted to create these pieces of art to help bring more awareness to their projects across the world and also highlight the climate issues we are currently facing.”

The appeal, in which all donations will be matched by the UK government until 9th March 2021, will help fund a new project using proven approaches from two previous successful campaigns to turn the tables on climate change in Zimbabwe and Sudan.
