During the first COVID-19 lockdown, we initiated a project to help local people connect with each other and stay creative. We commissioned local artists to make online workshops, videos and resources for people to take part in and share their work online. This all culminated in an online exhibition in which professional artists, community artists and under 16’s took part in. Local judges from the community chose the winners from each category and we were able to have an exhibition in our building for a week before the second national lockdown.
During the second lockdown we will again be making creative packs for people and families isolated and or affected by COVID-19. All resources from this project can also be printed upon request to make sure that the materials are accessible for everyone.
