Transported are announcing their latest activities; ‘The Creative Response to Loneliness programme’, an initiative to combat the feelings of loneliness and isolation that the pandemic has brought through creative activity.
The programme has been funded by Arts Council England to provide immediate, targeted relief through creative and cultural activity to those most at risk of loneliness as a result of Covid-19
Several artists of different expertise, all local to Lincolnshire or have worked in the area before, were approached to submit their ideas for projects fitting to the programme brief.
The selected projects have a variety of art forms for participants to get involved with, ranging from story sharing to be turned into window decals, mixed media drawing for parents of small children to capture those early memories, making clay tiles, art materials in a pizza box to be delivered to your door, designing fish that will be turned into clay fish tiles on a Boston sculpture and a creative pen pal scheme.
All of the projects are catered to the residents of Boston and South Holland and all of the projects are free to participants.
Transported are inviting the public to take a look at the programme and get involved, try a skill and maybe make some new connections.
