Inspiring ‘Creative Kindness’ Project

19.05.2020

The impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) is being felt across the UK and it is a worrying and uncertain time but if we work together and look out for each other, no one needs to feel alone.

Many older members of our community are feeling anxious and lonely in these difficult times.

Not everyone has family or friends nearby and not everyone has the technology we sometimes take for granted that keep us connected. We are all in this together and we don’t want anyone to feel alone so….

Our challenge to you is to create an original A5 piece of artwork that includes a rainbow, a butterfly and positive message – (this can be on the front or the back of the artwork).

The rainbow has become a symbol of hope in these difficult times and the butterfly represents transformation and change. It also represents our age-friendly communities.

You don’t need to be a great artist you just need to want to make someone’s day that little bit brighter and let them know you care.

Doing good for others and being creative is good for our wellbeing too. Small acts of kindness not only make the person receiving them feel better but the act of kindness and giving can improve our mental health too.

We want people of all ages and abilities to get involved.

Your artwork will be shared with older members of our communities, who may be feeling isolated or lonely. We want to show that we care and that they are not alone.

We will be sharing hints, tips and inspiration over the coming week including how your artwork will be shared.

Age-friendly Lache have kindly agreed to collect everyone’s artwork together. The artwork will spend some time in isolation before being sent on its way to bring some joy and encouragement to others.

Please post your artwork to:

Please remember:

  • If you are shielding or self-isolating please ask someone else to post it for you.
  • Please only use your first name on your artwork, and no other personal details.

We look forward to receiving your colourful creative creations!
