Urban Art

The Norwich BID mural project aims to enliven vacant and tired spaces around the city centre with dynamic large-scale murals to the theme of “City of Stories”. The murals deliver a new dimension to the experience of the city centre and positively build on Norwich’s status as England’s first UNESCO City of Literature.
