"The Girl with the Windmills" is the first large-scale mural to be created in Lokeren for Belgian NGO 11.11.11. The mural is a symbol for living together in the multicutural Lokeren district of Heirbrug. In addition to brightening up the neighbourhood, the North-South Movement wants to use this work of art to make development cooperation more open to discussion. The huge eye-catcher - literally and figuratively - will open passers-by's eyes to development cooperation and international solidarity.
"The image of a woman is more than a reference to development cooperation and international solidarity. There are also some links to the "Heirbrug" district. If you look closely, you can even see a miniature windmill from Heirbrug, which is incorporated into the earring. I was very happy with this assignment and the reactions of everyone who passes by here are very positive. People spontaneously offer me coffee or tea, and I am invited to eat something warm here every day. And this is done by people from different backgrounds. I really feel included here" - Nigel Leirens
