Home, Street, City celebrates artwork made by people across Wakefield during the Covid-19 lockdown, exploring experiences and memories of their homes and neighbourhoods.
Brought together from classrooms and hotel rooms, bedroom floors and kitchen tables, posters by pupils from Lawefield Primary School and Urban House will be shown alongside drawings by our Creative Age group who have continued to meet via Zoom during lockdown.
We Cannot Walk Alone is the theme of Refugee Week 2021. The challenges of the past year have exposed deep inequalities between us, including housing, income and access to healthcare.
But the pandemic has also reminded us how intertwined our lives are, how important it is to treasure human connection, online or in person, and how much creative activity can help us through difficult times. Home, Street, City is a celebration of this creative spirit and the ways in which people of all ages across Wakefield have held onto a sense of togetherness through these challenging times.
