Southbank Centre: Art by Post: Of Home and Hope
During lockdown, the Southbank Centre conceived the Art by Post project, commissioning artists to pull together inspiring creative booklets that provided accessible cultural activities to over 4,500 people aged 18 to 103, who were at risk of social isolation, digital exclusion or loneliness. Now, the project has been turned into an exhibition – titled Art by Post: Of Home and Hope.
We’ve worked with the Southbank Centre to bring the exhibition to the streets of Brighton, Birmingham, London and Manchester, taking specially commissioned photographs of the creative works and participants to the streets they rose from. Presented in partnership with the National Academy for Social Prescribing, the digital and in-person exhibition that’s set to tour across the country make a huge case for the power and potential of creativity in people’s lives.
