Activity Overview

The Mako Create team are challenging you to create a Pixel Art design that will be showcased alongside hundreds of others in this community art peice to help Celebrate Halton.

This specially designed Pixel Art Wall exhibit is currently being displayed at The Culture HQ in Runcorn Shopping City. We’re really excited to collate and showcase hundreds of Halton’s individual pixel art creations into one giant exhibit to celebrate Halton’s diversity of culture during Halton Borough Of Culture 2021.
