Translink is calling on schools across Northern Ireland to enter a special prize draw for the exclusive opportunity to win a masterclass with NI-based Australian street artist Danni Simpson.
The initiative is part of Translink’s Life Better. Connected campaign, celebrating how public transport delivers connections that really matter. It brings to life how Translink strengthens communities, supports the economy, sustains the health and education of local people, and how switching to public transport is vital to tackle the climate crisis.
As part of the campaign, Danni recently created an urban-style mural illustration depicting well known places and connections around Northern Ireland.
Translink has been touring towns and cities with the mural, giving local people the opportunity to explore the theme of connection by colouring-in the bespoke artwork.

“Our recent Life Better. Connected mural roadshow was a great success with so many people showcasing their artistic talent.
"We’re now calling on all budding young artists out there to encourage their school to enter Translink’s special prize draw for the chance to win this unique masterclass visit. I’m really looking forward to sharing my own experience as a young artist and helping pupils explore their creative potential.”
At the masterclass, pupils will enjoy an informative presentation from Danni about who she is and what inspires her work as a young artist renowned for her unique and vibrant style; a showcase of her Translink Life Better. Connected mural; and the opportunity to create their own original artwork guided by Danni’s expertise.
