Becky Vincer is a community and visual mixed media artist. She is interested in human character strengths and often explores values of kindness, hope and curiosity through creativity.

Talking Tags are a series of large wooden gift tags featuring different conversation prompts and engraved illustrations.

The Talking Tags are installed on benches around Rainham Shopping Centre as part of the Welcome art project and aim to spark conversations and nurture connections in the area.

Becky Vincer said:

When I think welcoming places, I remember friendly and talkative people who have the courage to start a conversation or give a compliment.

The Talking Tags questions are uplifting, accessible and fun.

They build on the theme of 'Welcome' by giving friends, families and strangers a starting point for interesting and imaginative conversations.


The tags can be found on benches around Rainham Shopping Centre.
