Back to Life, Back to Reality – Leaving Lockdown
9th September 2021 – 31st December 2021
As lockdown lifts and life resumes, we asked the people of Cann Hall, in the borough of Waltham Forest, London: How has Lockdown been for you? What did you do during it? What did you miss? And what are you looking forward to getting back to?
Rather than just tell us their thoughts, we challenged residents to express their answers through art. This exhibition is the result, and the majority of pieces displayed have been created by people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, dementia, those with a mental health diagnosis or older persons.
The project was run by Uniting Friends for the people of Cann Hall and the work was funded and supported by the ward councillors through the Cann Hall Ward, Cultural Fund.
Check out all the art in our fantastic 3D virtual gallery as well as lots of photos of the artists in action by clicking the link below:
