The 13 Steps programme worked with young people and community groups in the Mount Vernon estate which is in an area that suffers high level of social and economic deprivation. Robb worked as artist-in-residence and developed a series of public artworks for their centre. The brief was to use the artworks as vehicle for change and reflect the content of the community’s  regeneration strategy.

Alan Quail who was on the Arts, Sport and Culture working group and a participant on the project said, “This is a significant arts project that involved the youngest and oldest members of the community and many in between. It provided the opportunity to learn new skills like painting and photography; it also increased confidence in our ability to express ourselves and shows the rest of Belfast a positive side to Mount Vernon and the people who live here.”
