If you’re wandering round Levy tomorrow, you might like to pop down and take a look at some of the stuff I’ve been painting in lockdown.

Station South Community Collage

A call for contributions for a Community Collage on the advertising board beside Station South on the A6.

Here’s an idea! We’d like to do something to keep us all entertained in these crazy times! 

We’re giving the advertising board over to you for a big #COMMUNITYCOLLAGE challenge.

To help lift people’s spirits and get creative at home we’re setting you an arty challenge over the next few days…we’ll prompt your efforts with themes!

A daily ‘call to action’ to submit your photos/artwork/words coming out of these trying times which represent the #positives and spread #hope and #happiness during this time. 

We’ll put the best ones into the #communitycollage and showcase on the advertising board on the A6/Stockport Road where we hope it will cheer up key workers and the like. 

Theme’s for inspiration so far are  #simplepleasures #workingfromhome#naturelovers  #foodforthought

Post your images/words/art on the Station South Facebook page HERE
