Want to be inspired this lockdown? My Local Lockdown Life is an exciting project which is collecting the experiences of BCP Council residents living through the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown period.
BCP Council in partnership with Arts by the Sea, Dorset Race Equality Council, Pavilion Dance South West and Poole Housing partnership is collating artwork from residents to capture how communities and individuals have experienced COVID-19. These include photos, stories, poetry and films.
You can see some of this artwork collected from last year’s lockdown at the online My Local Lockdown Life exhibition. This pen and wash sketch, ‘Queuing for Lidl’ was painted by PEDAS's own David Roberts. Congratulations David! This will become part of the museum's permanent collection.
