CELEBRATING  CREATIVITY IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES

At the height of the covid-19 pandemic we invited people of any age and at any location, to document their life during lockdown on postcards. We asked them to use any medium that would work on an A5 postcard to share some of their experience of this extraordinary time. They might be inspired by new routines or talents discovered, objects in their home that have become all too familiar, or whatever it is that they were looking forward to when the lockdown restrictions were relaxed. This exhibition celebrates creativity in exceptional circumstances.

Local groups including St Petroc’s homeless charity, Whole Again Communities, schools and residential homes, WILD young parents, Cornwall Library borrowers, the Intercom Trust and Shallal have contributed to the project. We have also had submissions from far flung places: from all over Cornwall, the UK, Europe to the Far East and the United States.

If you are unable to visit the exhibition in perosn you can view an online catalogue of the all the cards You can search by name, or by topic / theme.
