HOPE signs were thrown up by local street artists, along the river banks, bridges, motorway junctions, subways and along the promenades of Port Talbot.
It was a message of fresh positivity that we would see better times, optimistic days of sporting, social, domestic success where families, friends and foes would be able to spend time together - talking, eating, dancing, debating, playing and partying together - In it together once again.

We need HOPE, a little dose of sugar. San Portablo 1901 pay tribute to the street art of 2020 which not only gave us a lift, but HOPE that we will prevail and live to see better days.
Our Hope design is a tribute to the 2020 Street Art, it is a 3D Block HOPE with
Let our HOPE’s and not our hurt’s shape our future.
