In 2019 City of Sanctuary Southampton received funding from Southampton City Council’s Community Chest fund to design and create a mosaic celebrating the Council’s pledge to make Southampton a City of Sanctuary.
Renowned local artist Will Rosie was commissioned to design and construct the mosaic, which will be erected on the approach to the redeveloped Southampton Central Station once local works have been completed.
