Art by Post: Of Home and Hope
9th November – 27th November.
The Southbank Centre’s landmark Covid-19 initiative Art by Post celebrates the power of creativity in a touring exhibition of more than 600 pieces of artwork created in lockdown.
The exhibition – both physical and digital – showcases artworks from the Art by Post community of 4,500 participants from across the UK who were at risk from social isolation and digital exclusion during the pandemic, and highlights the positive impact of art and creativity on health and wellbeing.
Although the exhibition has been shaped by the isolating experience of successive lockdowns, the artworks are a powerful celebration of creativity and resilience.
The exhibition is developed in partnership with National Academy for Social Prescribing (NASP), and curated by Persilia Caton. Delivery partners are Age UK Oxfordshire and Camden, artsdepot, The Barn, Beacon Arts Centre, Dulwich Picture Gallery, HOME, Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, NAPA Arts in Care Homes, Nightingale Hammerson, Philharmonia Orchestra, Platform and Sunderland Culture
