Safer, Greener, Cleaner Campaign

Falmouth Town Council is drawing a line against graffiti as part of its Safer, Cleaner, Greener public information campaign. irresponsible flyposting not only deface property and undermine Falmouth’s reputation as a creative hub, but also waste valuable resources that could be better invested in the local community. The council is a huge supporter of the visual arts, with a legacy stretching from JMW Turner and Henry Scott Tuke through to the edgy experimentation of Falmouth University students and the contemporary artists that the town’s award-winning art gallery regularly showcases.
