An exhibition celebrating the creativity, stories and experiences of the local community during lockdown.

An exhibition celebrating the creativity, stories and experiences of our visitors and local community during the Coronavirus pandemic. Every fortnight during the countrywide lockdown we released a new theme to inspire our audiences with ideas of art they could create. These themes were based on the 6 ways to wellbeing; Be Kind (in partnership with People United), Be Connected, Be Mindful, Be Active, Be Green and Be Inspired. We encouraged participants to be as imaginative as possible. The responses varied in mediums – from paintings, drawings and photographs, to textile, prints and more. The collective result is an inspiring snapshot into the lives of ordinary people during an extraordinary period in history.
