As part of People United’s 10-year anniversary celebrations, we have commissioned a neon sign for the window of the Sidney Cooper Gallery Canterbury Christ Church University, reminding passers-by to ‘be kind’.

People United’s mission is to create a more kind and caring society through the arts. We believe that in order for us to live well together, we need to strengthen our capacity for empathy, compassion, friendship, neighbourliness and concern for others.

The word ‘kind’ comes from the old English noun ‘cynd’ which meant ‘nature’, ‘family’, ‘lineage’ or ‘kin’ – connecting us together in the present and across time.

The sign will be on show at Sidney Cooper Gallery Canterbury Christ Church University, 22-23 St Peter’s St, Canterbury CT1 2BQ until the end of December 2016.
